Brushfire Literature and Arts Journal


The Brushfire journal exists because of our contributors. Without submissions from creative students and artists everywhere, there would be no content, no fuel to set each new Brushfire into print. Share your work with us today!

Artist Spotlight

Get to know our published artists! Brushfire’s Artist Spotlights feature some of our favorite UNRists and local contributors. Learn about their work, their studies, and so much more


A smorgasbord of UNR arts-related news alongside upcoming Brushfire events, collaborations, and updates, so you never miss out on our awesome projects! 


Throughout its seventy-two years in print, Brushfire’s priority has been to connect various student and local Reno art communities with eager readers and viewers. The publication strives to be a creative outlet for the student body at UNR and make art accessible for everyone.
