Submit your art and writing for publication in our bi-annual magazine.

The Plum Creek Review is Oberlin's longest running publication for student art and writing. We consider writing of all ilks - every genre, every style. We also consider every type of art for printing in full color. You can submit as many pieces as you'd like of any length, although we will be less likely to accept prose pieces over 10 pages. e do not consider simultaneous submissions(e.g. please don't submit the same piece to Wilder Voice and  Plum Creek Review).

The Plum Creek Review accepts all kinds of written work: poetry, fiction, non-fiction, plays, screenplays, translations, etc., as well as photos and artwork. Basically, we're looking for anything creative you can put on a page. The review process is completely anonymous and there is no limit to the number of pieces you can submit. We do not hold a copyright on your work, but we do ask that you not submit work that you are submitting to other campus publications in the same semester. There is no limit on the length of pieces submitted; however, length is taken into account and pieces longer than 10 pages are less likely to get in.We are now in full color which means we can accept color photos and artwork. (Black & White photos and artwork are still cool, though.)

To submit, send your work in an email to or submit a hard copy to wilder box 29.

For more information please visit our website . The Plum Creek Review's goal is to foster the creative act, to give literary and non-literary artists a chance to see their work in print and to share it with others, and to bring together people for whom these things are important.
