Well, it looks like we dropped the ball on letting everyone know that we launched the 2017 issue of Oakwood, which is available electronically at <https://issuu.com/sdsuoakwood/docs/oakwood_2017–final>. 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 <https://www.facebook.com/sdstateoakwood/> and you’ll get up-to-the-second information.
