Oyez Review is the literary magazine of the Creative Writing Program at Roosevelt University. It is published annually, edited by a staff of MFA candidates under the direction of a faculty member with professional experience in the publishing world. Founded in 1965, Oyez Review has featured work by such writers as Charles Bukowski, James McManus, Carla Panciera, Michael Onofrey, Tim Foley, John N. Miller, Gary Fincke, and Barry Silesky, and visual artists Thomas C. Jackson, Steve Harp, Vivian Nunley, C. Taylor, Jennifer Troyer, and Frank Spidale.

The name Oyez comes from the Anglo-Norman word for hear ye, the imperative plural of oyer, meaning to hear. It was used as a call for silence and attention in court and at public gatherings.

    Dear Editors:
    I had a poem published in OYEZ REVIEW in winter 2010, “My 53rd Autumn in Michigan.” I have been asked to have it republished in BAMBOO RIDGE in winter 2012. In order to do that, I need your permission to reprint it along with giving credit to OYEZ REVIEW in the publication.

    Can I have your permission? Let me know as soon as possible.

    What is your circulation and your press run?

      Hi, Diane. Print issues of Oyez Review are available in independent bookstores around the country and on Amazon. We’re also breaking into two other eBook markets in the coming months. The print run for each volume is currently around 600, but this number is subject to change each year.
