What is the Brushfire?
The Brushfire is the official literature and art publication of the University of Nevada, Reno and was the first literary journal in the state of Nevada. It is published under the direction of the Associated Students of University of Nevada. The Brushfire is published once a semester and is distributed all over campus and throughout the community.

The second is to provide our University community and the community at large an exciting and inspiring publication that sparks creativity. The Brushfire exists to unify the vast genres of creative expression and concepts with which people in our community are working and interested in.
What is published in the Brushfire? Short stories, creative nonfiction, poetry, photography, drawings, paintings, sculptures, ceramics, screenplays and scripts, video, music, and everything.... The Brushfire publishes original writing and artwork by approximately 80 artists per issue chosen from upwards of 600 submissions.
