GENERAL SUBMISSIONS

The Oxford American welcomes fiction and nonfiction submissions, as well as proposals for articles. We accept submissions via Submittable. (There is a $3 processing fee for most categories.) The Oxford American does not accept submissions on paper and cannot return manuscripts sent to the office.

Please familiarize yourself with recent issues of the magazine before you submit. The Oxford American can be purchased at discerning bookstores and newsstands everywhere. Single-copy issues and back issues may be purchased here. Issues appear in March, June, September, and November. Our annual Southern Music Issue appears in November.
