Azahares is University of Arkansas-Fort Smith’s award-winning Spanish-language creative literary magazine.  The primary purpose of this magazine is to provide students and community members with an arena for creative expression in the Spanish language, as well as a literary space for writing that presents the themes of the Latino experience.  The azahar, or orange blossom, is a flower of special meaning.  Representative of new life and purity, azahares form part of the iconic tradition of the Spanish-speaking world, embodying a freshness of spirit and perspective captured with this publication.  Although Azahares predominantly highlights student work, submissions are open to all members of the community. Call for submissions for the Spring 2021 edition will open May 1, 2020 and continue until January 19th, 2021.

All written submissions must be primarily in Spanish, or if in English, they must thematically reflect Latino culture.  All artwork and photography must reflect the culture of the Spanish-speaking world.
