The Roadrunner Review is an online literary journal produced by students at La Sierra University, a Seventh-day Adventist institution. We want to create a beautiful literary space for students, and we welcome submissions from around the world. We are interested in work that plunges us into a moment and unravels larger truths. We like to be surprised with language, and we find that wonder can come when ordinary moments are carefully observed. Because the world is a busy place, we aim to give readers short, vivid reading experiences. 


We invite students, both undergraduates and graduates, to submit cover art, poetry, flash fiction and flash nonfiction. Maximum words: 1000.


We ask that all submitted work be previously unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are welcome as long as you inform us if your work is accepted elsewhere. Please note in your cover letter where you attend school.

We invite student artists, both undergraduates and graduates, to submit artwork for the cover of ISSUE 5. 

Only vertical art can be considered for the cover. 

Submit up to three digital images and place them in one submission. Please include a bio in your cover letter and let us know where you're a student.
