You must be currently enrolled at Pittsburg State University to be considered for publication in our annual print issue of Cow Creek Review

Creative nonfiction works should utilize both factual information as well as literary technique to create a compelling piece. Memoirs and personal essays which include an engaging narrative are encouraged. Please be mindful about keeping grammatical and structural errors to a minimum. Each submission should abide by the following standards:

  • Document should be set to 12 pt font
  • Document should be single spaced
  • Document should NOT include your name
  • Works should be no more than 15 pages. You can submit longer works, but we will only accept longer pieces that truly enthrall us. 

There is no limit on the number of creative nonfiction works you may submit; however, please submit each piece as a separate entry. 

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
