The Summer of Oyez 40

So far Oyez Review‘s fortieth year has been a great success. We’ve had several successful readings featuring our contributors, staff, and longtime friends, we’ve been to Boston for AWP, we’ve debuted our first full-color issue, we’ve even put out a new eBook.

And now, welcome to the new look of Oyez Review online.

But it doesn’t stop there! Next month, we’ll be at the Printer’s Row Litfest, handing out guidelines, candy, and selling the beautiful issue that gives us our current, orange color palette. Printer’s Row Litfest runs the weekend of June 8-9, and you can stop by and see us from 10AM. Need more details? Watch for announcements here, and on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
