Sagebrush Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.



All college students may submit works of Poetry, Prose, Art, and Photography for consideration of publication in the University of Texas at San Antonio’s Literary and Arts Journal, Sagebrush Review Volume 14.

The Theme for this volume is "Persona." Submitters may choose to respond directly or indirectly to this theme, or not at all. We will favor those submissions that engage "Persona" in all that might mean. Extreme creativity is welcome.

All submissions will be considered for the "Editor's Choice" award in the categories of visual arts (art and photography) and writing (poetry and prose). The winner of the visual arts category will have his or her artwork featured as the volume's cover; the winner of the writing category will be on the first page, with acknowledgement.
