Cow Creek Review is Pittsburg State University's journal of literature and art. Established in the fall of 1960 under the name Matrix, we’ve been publishing diverse, innovative poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art for almost sixty years.

We're currently accepting submissions for our 2020 issue. If you're a Pittsburg State University student and have poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, or art that you'd like to see published, send it our way!

This year is our our first-ever themed issue: Instincts. Please be aware that we are interpreting the theme very loosely, and you should not feel discouraged if you feel your pieces don't adhere to the theme. We don't want the theme to exclude anyone or deter them from submitting. All submitted work will be considered on quality and craft rather than how closely it fits to the theme. That said, if you have work that more directly addresses the theme, we’re very interested in seeing it.
