The English Department at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College (FDLTCC) is excited to announce The Thunderbird Review Vol. 10 and is calling for high-quality creative work to be submitted. The deadline for submissions is December 15, 2021.

The Thunderbird Review is an inclusive journal based out of FDLTCC. Each year, the journal looks for work that speaks to the human condition and that fulfills the college’s goal to create a union of cultures.

Submission eligibility includes current residents or individuals with a strong connection to the Twin Ports area and the surrounding counties and tribal nations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the Upper Peninsula in Michigan, plus current students who are enrolled at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, University of Wisconsin-Superior, University of Minnesota-Duluth, College of St. Scholastica, or Lake Superior College,

Authors and artists may submit one entry per category except as noted above. The Thunderbird Review selection committee will not accept work that has previously been published, is under consideration elsewhere, or has received an award.

Submitted works must be sent via email to with the subject “Anthology Submission” and only email submissions will be accepted. On each submission, please provide contact information including the submitter’s name, address, telephone number, email address, the title(s) of works being submitted, and a 50-word bio written in third person.
