What You Need to Do

Sheepshead Review accepts submissions year-round. However, since our reading period is from September through April, works submitted during the summer may not receive a response for several months.

Fiction and nonfiction submissions may be up to 5000 words. We also welcome visual arts, poetry, translations, photo-essays, screenplays, and other hybrid genres.

All UW-Green Bay student entries accepted for publishing in the Spring issue will automatically be entered into the Rising Phoenix contest. One work from each genre will receive the award.
