Thunderbird Review seeks submissions

The Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College English Department is calling for submissions to enter in the seventh edition of The Thunderbird Review, its annual anthology of creative writing and art. The deadline is Dec. 1.

Submission eligibility includes students who are enrolled at FDLTCC, University of Wisconsin-Superior, University of Minnesota Duluth, College of St. Scholastica or Lake Superior College, along with residents of Carlton, St. Louis, Lake, Aitkin and Pine counties in Minnesota and Ashland, Douglas, Bayfield, Burnett, Sawyer and Washburn counties in Wisconsin.

Submissions must fall into one of five categories:

  • Short fiction (3,000 words maximum);
  • Creative nonfiction (3,000 words maximum);
  • Poetry (three poems maximum and no more than three total pages);
  • Artwork (three works maximum; any media, but art must be submitted as a jpeg file via email); or
  • Music (three songs maximum, submit as a link to a website like YouTube, SoundCloud or BandCamp).

Authors and artists may submit one entry per category. The Thunderbird Review selection committee will not accept work that has previously been published, is under consideration elsewhere or has received an award.

Only email submissions will be accepted. Provide contact information, including the submitter’s name, address, phone number, email, the title(s) of works being submitted, and a 50-word bio written in third person. The author’s name should not be on submitted manuscripts, although artwork may be signed. Writing entries should use Times New Roman size 12 font and be sent to as an attachment in .doc or .docx format.

All contributors selected for the final publication will receive one free copy. Contact Darci Schummer at for more information.
