OxMag (or more formally: Oxford Magazine) is a literary & arts magazine edited and published by creative writing MFA students at Miami University. Since our premiere in 1984, our magazine has received Pushcart Prizes for both fiction and poetry, and has published authors such as Charles Baxter, William Stafford, Robert Pinsky, Stephen Dixon, Helena Maria Viramontes, Andre Dubus, and Stuart Dybek. Appearing biannually, OxMag is a web-based journal that accepts fiction, poetry, new media, and creative nonfiction/essays.
We encourage prose/poetry writing and art that bends genres, experiments with forms, and includes interesting premises. We like writing that searches for meaning in experience—writing that makes us feel, think, cry, laugh, reflect, and relate. We encourage those who come from underrepresented communities and backgrounds to submit work, including but not limited to: race/ethnicity, class, geography/culture, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and ability.
Miami University is located within the traditional homelands of the Myaamia and Shawnee people, who along with other indigenous groups ceded these lands to the United States in the first Treaty of Greenville in 1795. The Miami people, whose name our university carries, were forcibly removed from these homelands in 1846.
