rift news and events

The Rift is El Paso's alternative magazine.


Print Issue #2


We're very proud to have brought to life our independently funded print issue number two. Since our inception The Rift was always about ideas, good writing, and a challenge to the narratives that dominate the airwaves. 


call for submissions


The Rift accepts submission of editorials, opinion pieces, essays, and/or videos or multi media. We would love nothing more than to work with fellow artists in an attempt to explore new ideas and produce thought provoking work. 


the rift book club


On occasion The Rift comes together to read interesting books . These book clubs are open to the public. In the past the Rift has discussed Zadie Smith's NW and Only Revolutions by Mark Danieleweski.
