Literary Submissions


Each year, theĀ Sierra JournalĀ  accepts submissions of unpublished work, including one-act plays, fiction or creative non-fiction prose (1,500 words or less), poetry (4-6 poems max), and excerpts of graphic novels. Entries are accepted from both current and former Sierra College students, employees, and the community.

Work will be juried by Sierra College’s Mythopoetics club. If selected, the artist agrees to have their work published in the Sierra Journal both in print and online. Artists’ work may also be used for promotional materials (social media, advertisements, inclusion on the SJ website, etc).
