Oxford American is moving to the University of Central Arkansas

Southern literary magazine Oxford American has been in financial trouble lately. According to this AP wire story, they’re hoping that a move will improve their situation.

“The University of Central Arkansas and the Oxford American announced a partnership on Saturday that will bring the critically acclaimed Southern literary magazine to Conway.” After going under for a second time last July, the magazine won a National Magazine Award this month for its music issue, finishing ahead of Rolling Stone.”

rochelle adds: I hope they make a go of it as a non-profit. The first incarnation of the OA was chock full o’ brilliant, fresh, writing and had great photos. Even the ads were interesting! (I also edited the post, Anna, because the Chronicle is only available to subscribers.)
