Creative Writing Beyond the Classroom

Publication Opportunities

The Creative Writing Program offers a variety of publications for students interested in gaining experience in editing, copyediting, proofing, and reading submissions, and design. 

Measure: A Review of Formal Poetry

This journal is dedicated to publishing the best metrical, English-language poetry from both the United States and abroad. Students have opportunities to serve as editorial interns for Measure under the guidance of creative writing faculty.

Ohio River Review

The Ohio River Review draws on the all-University writing contest for its content. Student editors pick what they deem the best of the contest entries for inclusion. The journal is published each spring in time for distribution at the final Creative Writing Coffee Hour, at which time contest entries are read.


The Creative Writing Program has a strong record of placing creative writing writing students in exciting internships.
