The Inkslinger is Biola University's creative arts journal, published once every semester. It accepts short fiction, poetry and black-and-white photography from students in all disciplines. The Inkslinger seeks to join Biola's creative artists from all academic disciplines in producing a single literary journal. In this process, writers and editors alike gain pre-professional publishing experience. While encouraging artists to hone their craft, The Inkslinger showcases some of Biola's greatest talent in a way that is accessible to students, alumni, parents, and other schools.
