The Literary Magazine of The Citadel
The Shako publishes creative work by current and past students of the institution. All submissions are compiled, edited, and published annually in the spring by current cadets for distribution throughout The Citadel community on Corps Day.

(Note: The pages turn much like the pages of a book. Use your cursor to drag each page from the top corner.)
Submissions to The Shako are accepted year-round, with a rolling November deadline for each issue, and all members of The Citadel's student body are encouraged to submit their creative productions, whether they take the form of poetry, fiction, photography, art, or comedic doodles.
Potential contributors are reminded that The Shako is an official Citadel publication and that publication is selective. We are simply unable to publish all submissions we receive. All decisions of the editorial staff in this regard are final.
