About Steam Ticket

Steam Ticket: a Third Coast Review is published each April. A nationally-distributed journal, we publish the best poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction we can get our hands on, from both prize-winning writers and from new and emerging writers.

Steam Ticket History:

Founded In 1996 by members of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse English department, Steam Ticket is staffed by a dedicated team of student editors and readers enrolled in English 320: Literary Journal Production/Publication. We commit ourselves to celebrating diversity in the selection of our content.

English 320: Literary Journal Production

This class of well-read students collaborates to review hundreds of submissions before selecting pieces they believe to have the highest literary merit.  Students assume roles as editors and readers, and the process is overseen (but not controlled) by a professor who has experience in creative writing and publishing.
