We encourage students to review our most recent issue before submitting (available online here: https://issuu.com/oaklandartsreview/docs/oar_vol._4_2019) to see if our journal might be the right place for your work. 

Please submit 1-2 scenes of screenwriting or other dramatic / theatrical writing. We also ask that you include a synopsis of the screenplay in your cover letter and adhere to screenplay formatting. We welcome work that is experimental in content and / or form. 

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but we do ask that you let us know in your cover letter if the pieces are going to other journals, and of course let us know straightaway if something has been taking by another magazine. 

Finally, our editorial class meets in the fall semester, and we accept work year round. That means that anything submitted outside the months of September - December is likely to get a slower response. But we still want to see your work!
