Introducing the 2015 Rising Phoenix C...

As final decisions are being made, I thought it would be great to introduce our judges for the 2015 Rising Phoenix Contest. For Short Prose we have Joel Hodgson, who was actually born in Stevens Point, Wisconsin! He is most known for creating Mystery Science Theater 3000. For Novel First Chapter, Nickolas Butler, the author of Shotgun […]

Travel, travel, travel

Over spring break, I traveled to to London to visit my sister, who was studying there for a ten week semester. What I came to realize after my trip was how uncultured I was. Most North Americans are not exposed to different cultures, we tend to think ethnocentrically. In London I was exposed to people […]

To kick off the chunk of time occurring after spring break, I conducted an interview with the Fiction Editor of the Sheepshead Review, Kelsy Rusch to learn more about her role and what led her to join the staff team. Enjoy! Q: Why did you want to be Fiction Editor? Rusch: I’m an older sister […]

Comic Book Adaptations: My Thoughts P...

Here’s part 2 of my review. SPOILERS may follow. “The Flash” 2014-present, CW One of the newest adaptations and a spin off from “Arrow,”  “The Flash,” has been received well by audiences. It stars Grant Gustin (“Glee,” 2011-13) as the titular character Barry Allen. Gustin does an amazing job with his portrayal. He adds just the […]

Comic Book Adaptations: My Thoughts P...

As a huge fan of anything and everything superhero and comic book hero related, I thought that I would touch on the several recent television adaptations and what I think of them regarding the plot and characters. Now I’m not too familiar with a couple of these so I’ll do my best, but remember this […]

We are Making Our Way Through Submiss...

I haven’t but I’m planning on it. I just wanted to update everyone that we are pounding our way through our submissions and we have found a […]

Not Always a High Note

When writing, you attempt to come up with a great attention getter that will eventually lead to a epic climax in your story but usually these stories are disconnected from you, they are not nonfiction.
