About

111 members set this magazine as a Favorite.

Oxford Magazine is a literary magazine edited and published by graduate students in the Department of English at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. 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. In 1997, Writers Digest named Oxford Magazine one of the fifty best fiction markets. In 2004, we left the world of ink and paper and became a web-based publication. This has allowed us to integrate sound and video into the works, as well as to reach a much greater readership.
