The Sacred Cow
From the Editor
The Sacred Cow is a literary magazine in digital format. The name might suggest that our mission is to annoy people, poking holes in their cherished beliefs. We do enjoy that, but our main goal is to provide good reading in the form of short stories, commentary on current events, essays, poetry, etc. Since good writing explores truth, we reserve the right to ignore and even tip over sacred cows, wherever they may be found.
Stories, poetry, and essays should explore the truth about life and reality from your perspective, whether that’s through humor, satire, short story, poetry, or other means. Pieces should be honest, and fearless but fair.
Editors Name Andrew Sharp, Jason Ropp, Sarah Mast Garber, Jared Stutzman, Matt Swartz
