There are presently no open calls for submissions.
Since we are a student-run publication, our reading periods typically run from early September to mid-October and from late January to late February.
We are open to all submissions in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and visual arts. For our Fall 2020 issue, we're especially interested in work that explores what community means in 2020. This theme is open to interpretation and expression. Send your best visual art, poetry, memoir, nonfiction, fiction, or flash exploring how 2020 has shaped human connections, networks, pods, neighborhoods, bedfellows, groups, and gatherings.
Also, for the first time ever in Fall 2020, we are accepting interactive pieces! You may use programs such as Twine, YouTube, or Google maps as ways to tell your story in an immersive way. If your interactive piece is selected for publication, we will feature it on the Sheepshead Review website with our web-exclusive content and shout it out in our print journal.
Terms and conditions can be found on our website (http://sheepsheadreview.com/ ) under the submit tab.
Specific Genre Guidelines are listed below.
**If you are a student or alumnus of UW-Green Bay, please remove your name from your submission. If you are a current student please make sure you use your UWGB e-mail.**
(This helps us keep our "blind" submission review process as fair as possible.)
If you are a high school student, note that you can submit up to 3 works to each genre: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual arts. Please clearly mark the pieces with the genre and the name of your high school or if you are homeschooled in your title line or in the cover letter/biography section of your submission. Please also limit works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to 3000 words or less, and make sure that the resolution for visual arts submissions is at least 300dpi. Each submission should also be submitted separately, instead of several submissions in one document.
Thank you for your interest in Sheepshead Review!
