Submissions to The Shako are accepted year-round, 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.
