The MSU Roadrunner Review launches once a year, in December. Submissions are open to all writers outside of the university, and we invite original, previously unpublished work during our reading period: early September to mid-November.

We consider:

  • Fiction: 3,500 words or less
  • Flash Fiction: 550 words or less
  • Creative Nonfiction: 3,200 words or less
  • Poetry: no more than two single-spaced pages
  • Visual Art: single image with a meaningful title.

Prose and poetry should be sent as a properly formatted Word document to [email protected], with the genre and word count (for prose pieces) in the subject line.  Pieces that come in without this information in the subject line may not be considered.

Image-oriented work (including graphic short stories) should be submitted as an attachment in an easily accessible format to [email protected].

Multiple submissions are fine, but each must come in its own email.

Please include a short bio.

We look forward to your submissions!
