The Oval Literary Magazine

The University of Montana

Prose & Poems

The Oval, in partnership with the University Center, presents Prose & Poems each month at 7:00 pm in the University Center, room 330.

Prose translates, from the Latin prōsa, as “straight-forward.” Poetry comes from the Latin poeta, or poet, id est a person who writes poetry. Students, from any discipline at the University of Montana, are invited each month to read their own work or works of people they admire, in an uncomplicated, undemanding gathering of their peers. Join us for a casual evening of readings and gourmet refreshments courtesy of UC Events.
