The Oval Literary Magazine

The University of Montana

Prose & Poems

Prose & Poems Flyer

The Oval, in partnership with the University Center, presents Prose & Poems the first Tuesday of each month in the University Center, room 332. 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.
