Submissions CLOSED for Oakwood 2019

Yesterday was the last day for submissions. Thank you to everyone who sent in their work! We will now be dedicating most of our time to reading all the submissions we’ve received. Acceptance and rejection emails should be going out around mid-March as it will take us some time to read everything we’ve received and cast our final votes.

We look forward to reading all your submissions!

Time for a Launch!

We’ve got some catching up to do!

Oakwood front Cover onlyWell, it looks like we dropped the ball on letting everyone know that we launched the 2017 issue of Oakwood, which is available electronically at <–final&gt;. But better late than never. Hope you’ll take a look! We had a great reading and launch party at Briggs Library on the South Dakota State University campus.

The fall chill is starting to set in here on the northern plains, which means we’re only three months away from our next submission period. Stay tuned here for more details, or better yet follow us on Facebook <; and you’ll get up-to-the-second information.
