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

We are in search of stories which include captivating characters and engaging plot-lines. We want stories that encompass the reader in a vivid dream. Unique and original concepts are strongly encouraged. Please be mindful about keeping grammatical and structural errors to a minimum. Fiction can be in any style or genre. We also accept flash fiction.

Each submission should abide by the following standards:

  • Document should be set to 12 pt font
  • Document should be single spaced
  • Do not submit fan-fiction
  • Document should NOT include your name
  • Fiction should be no longer than 15 pages. You can submit work over this limit, but we will only accept longer prose that truly enthralls us. 

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

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
