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 second issue of The Shallows, we are looking for poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art that are inspired by family secrets that are revealed during moments of loss, guilt, and/or anger. Our mission is to publish work that is not afraid to dive into the troubling relationships between family members in the middle of emotional turmoil and discovery.
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.
