Welcome to the online home of the Sheepshead Review, UW-Green Bay’s Journal of Literature and Art!
Check out the digital copy of our Fall 2020 issue here!
Sheepshead Review first went to print in 1975 under the name Sheepshead Revue, a cheeky reference to the popular Wisconsin card game (trivia note: Sheepshead originated in Germany as “Schafkopf”). It features creative writing and visual art from students at UW-Green Bay, and stayed in print off and on for the next 24 years, pausing in 1999 for a four-year sabbatical.
In 2003, a small band of students and faculty came together and plotted, conspired, and collaborated to revive the journal for a re-launch in Spring 2003. Ever since, UW-Green Bay students, faculty, and even creatives outside campus have contributed to help us publish a journal every spring and fall semester.
Sheepshead Review went full-color in 2007 to give our visual arts contributors the image quality their work deserves (and also to give our graphics team a bigger design playground). While each of our issues takes on a new form, each champion the same spirit of creativity that inspired its first publication.
