The Sheepshead Review poetry staff is looking for submissions with a honed edge—fresh and lucid content, palpable imagery, and an audible attention to sound. Cliché is your mortal enemy. We read free-verse to formal, and everything in between. And, don’t forget form can speak as much as your title, and your title as loud as your lines. Be bold. Be brilliant. Take risks. We look forward to reading your work.
As always these are blind submissions; you will succeed on the merit of your lines.
While submissions to Sheepshead Review are allowed in any quantity, we ask that you please keep in mind we are a small student-run organization, and that you limit yourself to a maximum of five submissions.
Please upload each poem as a separate submission rather than a single document. This helps us stay organized!
**Please remove your name from your piece. If you are a current student, please use your UWGB e-mail. If you are a high school student, please include the name of your high school in the cover letter section.**
