Since 2010, Badlands has published poetry, fiction, and nonfiction in English and Spanish and in translation. The magazine is aesthetically flexible: we publish work in a wide variety of themes, genres and forms. Readers of several editions will discern our abiding interest in the literature of place, including the landscapes of the American west, and in immigrant and indigenous voices.
