Submission Guidelines

OxMag is now accepting fiction, poetry, new media, and creative nonfiction/essays. Appearing quarterly , OxMag is a web-based journal that acquires first North American serial rights, one-time anthology rights and online serial rights. Simultaneous submissions are okay as long as you kindly let us know if and when someone beats us to the punch (that means, please withdraw your submission via Submittable as soon as possible).

OxMag accepts only electronic submissions. Please send the files as Word documents (.doc), or PDFs for text submissions. New media work can be sent in various formats, but questions should be directed to the Editors at

All submissions should include your name, address, and e-mail address where you can be reached.

We make every effort to accept or decline submissions within six months starting in September. Occasionally it may take longer. If we haven’t gotten back to you in six months, feel free to check in.

We do not read in July or August.
