Catfish Creek, the national undergraduate literary journal published by Loras College, is now reading for their fifth issue, to be released in spring of 2015.
Any student currently registered in an undergraduate program is eligible to submit. If we accept your work, we will ask for proof of your current enrollment.
The reading period is September 1-December 5. Any manuscripts received outside of that time will be deleted unread.
As a general rule CC places no restrictions on style or subject matter. While we do not consider straight genre pieces (SF, fantasy, horror, etc.) we will consider literary-quality writing that crosses genre lines. We are also not looking for work that depicts excessive violence, though exceptions might be made if the work exhibits literary merit.
Catfish Creek will happily read simultaneous submissions, provided that you notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.
