Founded in 2016, Ovis (ISSN 2578-9929) is a journal of art and literature by members of the MCC community: students, faculty, and staff. Ovis is currently accepting submissions of poetry; short or long form fiction and non-fiction; photography, painting, moving image and other visual arts; music and sound art; and any other creative work made by the MCC community.
Ovis is published exclusively online, biannually, and has two submission seasons corresponding generally with the Fall and Spring semesters. Information about when submissions open and close will always be found on the Submit page.
The name, “Ovis,” comes from the scientific name of the MCC mascot, Ovis canadensis, or the bighorn sheep.
Ovis is supported by student members of Ovis Club, an MCC student organization. MCC students interested in joining the project as student editors or technical staff should contact Ovis Club.
