Tap Into Literary Tradition for The Oxford American

As a regional pub, The Oxford American covers the more intellectual side of Southern culture, focusing especially on its literary history. And, with such a high regard for writing, its editors are only looking for the best, most thoughtful pitches from freelancers.

“You could argue that the South has the most varied and exciting literary tradition in the country,” said former editor-in-chief Marc Smirnoff.

In any given issue, there can be memoir, travel, poetry, fiction, lifestyle, literary criticism, investigative journalism, and often a heady mix of several of these at once. With such a wide range of content, this pub is perfect for writers looking to cover meaty pieces.
