The Oakland Review is a student-run literary-art magazine at Carnegie Mellon University, founded in 1973. The magazine is a showcase of all forms of poetry, prose, and art. Formerly only available to CMU students and alumni,[1] the magazine has since opened to the general public. It has been a finalist in the Association of Writers & Writing Programs' National Program Directors' Prize for undergraduate journals.[2] The editors-in-chief currently are Julie Kim and Hyunho Yoon.

History[edit | edit source]

The Oakland Review was created in 1973 by Carnegie Mellon University's creative writing department in an attempt to form a national journal.[3] Originally named Two Hands the journal was renamed to The Oakland Review after issues with funding forced the journal to only include those submissions that were received from the campus.[3] As a result, the magazine initially became a resource only to members of the Carnegie Mellon community.

While The Oakland Review initially started out as a creation of the university's English department[3], it found itself in the hands of English undergraduate students once it focused in on campus submissions. The Oakland Review then served as a playground for undergraduate students to work on their writing and get it disseminated. This was the case for the debut novel Voodoo Dreams by Jewell Parker Rhodes[4][5][6] and debut short story collection Inventing Victor by Jennifer Bannan,[7] which grew out of their work on earlier short stories that appeared in the magazine. Now as a journal with a national reach, it continues to be student-run.

Over the years The Oakland Review has been advised under many different professors, including Jim Daniels and Terrance Hayes[1].

Editorial board[edit | edit source]

The editorial board is decided on a year-to-year basis. Excluding the faculty adviser, all members of the editorial board are students.
