Submission Guidelines

The Oklahoma Review is an electronic literary magazine published through the Department of English at Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma. The editorial board consists of English and Professional Writing undergraduates, as well as faculty advisors from the Departments of English and Foreign Languages & Journalism.

The goal of our publication is to provide a forum for exceptional fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction in a dynamic, appealing, and accessible environment. The magazine's only agenda is to promote the pleasures and edification derived from high-quality literature.

The Oklahoma Review is a continuous publication, now in its eighth year. We publish two issues online each year, Spring and Fall. Although we accept submissions at any time, our general deadlines are as follows:

  • To have your work considered for the Spring issue: January 15
  • To have your work considered for the Fall issue: September 15

All works must be submitted electronically to The Oklahoma Review. Submissions are welcome from any serious writer working in English. We will neither consider nor return submissions sent in hard copy, even if return postage is included.

Writers may submit the following:

  • As many as three (3) prose pieces of 30 pages or less.
  • As many as five (5) poems or translations of any length.
  • As many as three (3) nonfiction prose pieces of 30 pages or less.
  • Files should be sent as e-mail attachments in either .doc or .rtf format. If an attachment is impossible, writers may submit their work in the body of their e-mail messages, noting specific format criteria when necessary.
  • When sending multiple submissions (e.g. five poems), please include all the work in a single file rather than five separate files.
  • Authors should also provide a cover paragraph with a short biography in the body of their e-mail.
  • Simultaneous submissions are acceptable. Please indicate in your cover letter if your work is under consideration elsewhere.
