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. However, we are delighted to announce our first-ever summer journal, which will run from mid-May to mid-June.
We are open to all submissions in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and visual arts. For our Summer 2021 issue, we're additionally interested in work that pertains to "wanderlust", or the intense urge and desire to travel. This theme is open to interpretation and can focus on a variety of topics, including the exploration of emotions that may be tied to travel (such as joy or fear) or how traveling affects our relationship with the world.
We are also accepting submissions of 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 and nonfiction to 3000 words or less and include the final word count in the header. For poetry, we ask that the title of your submission contains the title of all poems submitted, regardless if the poems are in one document or multiple. For visual arts, please make sure that the resolution for all submissions is at least 300dpi. Each submission should also be submitted as separate documents, instead of several submissions in one document.
Thank you for your interest in Sheepshead Review!
