Review issues call for submissions
December 2, 2022
The English department at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College is accepting submissions of high-quality creative work for the 11th edition of the Thunderbird Review. The deadline for submissions is Dec. 15.
Based at FDLTCC, the Thunderbird Review is an inclusive journal that looks for work that speaks to the human condition and fulfills the college’s goal to create a union of cultures.
Submissions will be accepted from current residents of, or individuals with a strong connection to, the Twin Ports area and the surrounding counties and tribal nations. The Thunderbird Review selection committee will not accept work that has previously been published, is under consideration elsewhere, or has received an award.
Submissions must fall into one of four different categories: short fiction (3,000 words maximum), creative nonfiction (3,000 words maximum), poetry (three poems maximum, submitted in one document), or art (three works maximum, any media).
“The journal is an outlet to showcase the wonderful creative work being generated by writers and artists living in or connected to this area,” said faculty editor Darci Schummer. “One of the important functions of the journal is to publish the work of established and emerging writers and artists side by side.”
Written work may be in Anishinaabemowin or English and should be submitted as an attached .doc or .docx file. Art must be submitted as an attached .jpeg file. Email submissions to [email protected] with the subject line “Anthology Submission.” Include contact information including name, address, telephone number, email address, the title(s) of works being submitted, and a 50-word bio written in third person.
All contributors selected for the final publication will receive one complimentary copy. Questions? Email [email protected].
