Cream City Review is Milwaukee’s leading literary journal devoted to publishing memorable and energetic pieces that push the boundaries of writing. Continually seeking to explore the relationship between form and content, Cream City Review features fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, visual art, reviews of contemporary literature, and author interviews. Published biannually, Cream City Review is a graduate student-run, not for profit journal which has attracted readers and submissions from around the world. Approximately 4,000 submissions are received each year from both unpublished and established writers.
Dating back to 2000, Furrow showcases outstanding undergraduate writing and art from across the U.S. and gives UW-Milwaukee undergraduates training in editing, publishing, publication design, web design, publicity, fundraising, and business practices. Through the generous support of local donors and the UWM Department of English, we publish a full-color, print issue of the journal every May and feature new work regularly on our website. Our goal is to connect student writers and artists with a broader network of creative spirits within and beyond Milwaukee.
We publish poetry, fiction, nonfiction, art, and comics from undergraduates all across the U.S.
