The Shallows is the biannual issue of Cold Creek Review that separates itself from the theme of the troubled and the paralyzed. All submissions chosen for The Shallows are paired with an interview between the editor who chose to publish the submission and the writer/artist responsible for the submission.
For the third issue of The Shallows, we are looking for poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art that are inspired by moments when getting something you desperately wanted caused massive regret. Our mission is to publish work that is not afraid to embrace the guilt associated with second guesses, emotional hardship, and how awards are not always in your best interest.
If you would like to submit to The Shallows, follow the submission guidelines and include the words “The Shallows” in the subject of your submission.
