ROCKLIN, Feb. 13, 2012 - The Sierra Journal is a project developed by the students of Sierra College. The Sierra Journal meets several of the college's core values, specifically "creating and nurturing meaningful connections to our community" and "fostering active citizenship in our community." As such, the Journal will feature students currently enrolled at Sierra College as well as members of the community and local high schools.
The Sierra Journal is looking for new and unpublished works of poetry, short fiction, photography, visual art, culinary arts, ceramics, sculpture, drawing, music, short film, and a variety of other forms of art for the 2011-2012 school year. No preference is given to any specific style or genre; we seek original works of quality.
