Submission Guidelines

  • Only the author or artist of the work (or their representative) can submit it for publication in riverrun.
  • No more than five (5) pieces in any writing genre or arts/performance medium will be accepted from any one (1) contributor. You can submit in multiple genres and media.
  • Authors or artists whose work is accepted in riverrun may be offered the option of recording a performance of their work to be published on the riverrun YouTube channel. Should an author or artist accept and pursue this option, riverrun will retain all performance rights for 30 days after publication of the video; after that time, all performance rights revert to the author/artist.
  • Questions or comments can be e-mailed to riverrun’s editors at riverrun@uccs.edu.
  • PLEASE DON'T INCLUDE YOUR NAME IN THE FILE NAME OR ANYWHERE IN THE DOCUMENT.
