Sheepshead Review is University of Wisconsin-Green Bay's internationally-distributed, award-winning, undergraduate-edited journal of the arts.
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). The journal features creative writing and visual art from students at UWGB, and stayed in print off and on for the next 24 years, pausing in 1999 for a four-year sabatical.
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, UWGB students, faculty, and even creatives outside campus have contributed, helping us publish a journal every spring and fall semester.
The journal 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 inspiried its first publication.
