You can find examples of Miami undergraduate student work in the links to Inklings and Happy Captive Magazines, both run by students. Oxmag, the literary journal run by the MFA graduate students is not limited to student work, but rather an example of their editing, design and production. They get to work with Oxmag Managing Editor (and Co-Editor of Miami University Press), Professor Jody Bates.


We are working on an alumni listing of books with links. If you are a Miami alumni and wish to be listed, please email Brian Ascalon Roley, Director of Creative Writing, at creativewriting@miamioh.edu

Miami alumni are successful as writers (in the past few years, recent graduates have sold books to Penguin USA, Alfred A. Knopf, Random House and Harcourt) and in careers in university teaching, public service, editing and publishing, advertising, and the business and non-profit sectors. Many of our alumni go on to hold fellowships at prestigious MFA and PhD programs after completing their studies at Miami. Their work has been included in the annual O. Henry Prize Stories collection and other anthologies, received Intro Awards from AWP and Honorable Mention in the Atlantic Monthly Young Writer’s Competition, and been published widely in literary journals. Among Miami alums are Pulitzer-nominated playwright Rajiv Joseph, former director of the Academy of American Poets Beth Harrison, and Pulitzer Prize winner Rita Dove.


Our faculty are active in publishing. You can find more about their books by visiting their individual faculty pages or the English Department’s wider list of faculty books.
