Celebrating their third year at the Rune Magazine, Mackenzie Hill is the Managing Editor of the Rune Magazine at Robert Morris University. Having spent the first two years as an associate editor, Hill is excited to be leading the team to develop this year’s edition of Rune.

Rune is RMU’s student-edited literary magazine. They publish high-quality poetry, prose, and graphic works submitted by Robert Morris University students, faculty, and staff as well as writers and artists in the Pittsburgh region.

According to Hill, the magazine offers students an opportunity to submit their work for publication, allows students to be a part of the staff, and enhances their resumes. Students are also given an opportunity to pick positions that best align with their career interests.

“I like that Rune is student-run and students get to be involved in every step of the process of publishing a magazine,” Hill said. “Positions fit career goals and entice more students in a variety of majors to join.”

For students to submit a piece of work to the magazine, Hill was able to give some clear guidelines on how to do so. Students can submit up to three pieces as a Word Document (prose, poetry, drama, etc.) or a jpg (photography, art, graphic design, etc.) to [email protected] by March 5th at midnight for consideration.

Those who have their works accepted will receive a physical copy at the release reading, set for Thursday, April 13th at 6 p.m. in Wheatley Cafe. A digital copy will be available for the rest of the campus during that time as well.

Hill encourages students to join or submit to the magazine.

“The student staff members and advisors are personable and dedicated to the success of the magazine,” Hill said. “Rune is definitely a great opportunity that students should take advantage of at RMU.”

Rune Magazine is also associated with an RMU podcast called Lit Out Loud.
