The Oval Literary Magazine

The University of Montana

Previous Issues

  • SPRING 2011 VOLUME 4

    We all come from different places, be they physical, mental, or emotional. College is, for many, the place where all these different viewpoints connect. While some have criscrossed the country, trying to settle down, others have stayed close to home, hunting on the Missouri Breaks or getting to know the locals. The 2011 issue of the Oval contains stories, poems, and art expressing this variety of places.

    Volume 3
  • SPRING 2010 VOLUME 3

    College has its own culture, jargon, and rituals much like a country. We only live in this country for four years, but when we want to revisit, we do not have yearbooks, nor can we keep every weekly Kaimin newspaper. The Oval, a literary magazine with stories, visual art, and poetry captures themes, emotions, and memories experienced at college that a record-book cannot. In the third edition of The Oval, we hear a variety of voices speaking of unique experiences, but they all come from the same country—they’re University of Montana undergraduates.
