Founded in 2016, Ovis (ISSN 2578‌-‌9929) is a new 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.

If you are an MCC student and interested in joining the Ovis editorial staff as a student reader, please contact us.
