The staff of The Pacific Review is proud to present “On The Edge of Light” a stunning and intimate collection of writing and art from the CSUSB community, the Prison Education Project, and many more.

Fall 2021- Issue 41 is available to read below at no charge.



Issue 40 is Live!

Our latest issue, “Aflame and Unafraid” is now available to read for free. We all hope you enjoy our Spring 2021 issue. It has been another challenging year with its consistent highs and lows, yet it’s been a tender and luminous one. It seems to ask as well as demand of us to look deeper within and with those discoveries seek truths within the intricate systems and entities that oppress and liberate us. In the spirit of a full year of protest, we would like to dedicate Issue 40 to our local organizations and collectives committed to protecting and enhancing social and transformative justice practices in our communities.

You can find the latest issue under the “Issues” tab.

Issue 38 Now Live!

Our latest issue, “Alone Together: Confined in a Connected World” is now available to read for free. Featuring artists, writers, and poets from the CSUSB and Inland Empire community, our aim is to help one another connect during the difficulties of the pandemic. The issue is embedded for you below to read, and can also be downloaded.

Note from the Editors – COVID-19

Dear Readers,

We at Pacific Review would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation to all the communities and its thriving members of CSUSB, San Bernardino and the greater Inland Empire. You are all in our thoughts, our stories, our visions of the future during this tumultuous and uncertain time of COVID-19 and other multiple happenings occurring in our world. Thank you to the talented contributors who have their work in our first online issue. We highly value your words. Many thanks to Juan Delgado, Rachelle Cruz and Briar Rosa for taking the time to converse with us and share with us what inspires them to be dynamic and responsible educators, cultural producers, writers and artists in our communities. At Pacific Review, we are dedicated to highlighting the stories and people that make our region and our region’s history diverse, beautiful, strong and worthy of preservation. We hope to continue to hear from you even in these dark times. Although we are a tight student-run literary arts operation, we are also susceptible to the same pains, struggles and obstacles that all of you face. However, we will strive to be part of the collective transformation and work that is a part of community healing and bridge building.

In solidarity, resilience and care,

The Editors and Staff Members of The Pacific Review
