Welcome to Rune

As a peer-reviewed university literary journal, Rune promotes creative excellence, the joy of personal expression, and a sense of community by publishing and presenting original literary and graphic works of high quality from the Robert Morris University family and in the Pittsburgh region, and by sponsoring readings, websites, and other forms of media outreach.

Rune accepts submissions of photography, graphic design, drawings, poetry, and prose from all RMU students, faculty, and staff as well as from writers in the Pittsburgh region and beyond. Three pieces may be submitted per person. Drawings, graphic design, and photography should be submitted in .JPEG format, poems and prose as .doc or .docx files.  Submit all files as attachments to an email in which you provide a brief author bio and contact information.  

The campus literary journal offers students the opportunity to enhance their professional resumes while working with a personable staff on a timely basis. Students from every discipline are welcome.  Contact Dr. John Lawson at lawsonj@rmu.edu to learn more.
