Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Sheepshead Review is an international journal of art and literature directed, edited, and designed by undergraduates at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Contributors range in experience from high school students to emerging and established artists, and in location from Wisconsin to Washington to Seoul, South Korea. Published in full-color print twice a year, and available on ISSUU, the journal publishes all mediums of visual art, flash fiction, short stories, creative nonfiction, and poetry. While SHR encourages submissions from students from our four campus locations, our journal staff adheres to (and enforces) strict ethical standards in considering these submissions.

Submissions Policy
Sheepshead Review is a biannual publication, meaning you get two chances a year to submit. Send us your flash fiction, your art, and anything in between! Please see our Submittable page for guidelines on submissions. Everyone can submit up to three (3) pieces to our fiction, nonfiction, and poetry genres. Everyone can submit up to five (5) pieces to our visual arts genre. POETRY Our poetry staff is looking for a honed edge. Fresh and lucid content with palpable imagery that tantalizes all the senses really gets them going. Any form is accepted, from free-verse to concrete to formal. Be original. Be bold. Take risks. Be human. NONFICTION Our nonfiction staff wants your short memoirs, opinion pieces, narrative stories, interviews, profiles, historical narratives, letters…we’ve even published ironic recipes. The more creative, the better. We don’t want your life story, we want that one epiphanic moment that changed you. FICTION The fiction staff goes for originality almost as much as the poetry staff. Keep it succinct, keep it human. Short doesn’t denote shallow, neither does long, sophisticated. Hemingway could roil a stomach in six words. VISUAL ARTS The visual arts staff are looking for work that shows quality craftsmanship, unique style, and expression of the artist. All mediums of visual art are welcome. A note from the visual art staff: Images should be 300dpi and at least 5×7″. SHR does not offer post-processing services. Any submissions not visually presented well will likely be rejected. If you need technical assistance, ask us first and we’ll do our best to help.
