Episode 93 – Philip Burgess / Penny Postcards – Philip Burgess reflects on the 19th century fad of Penny Postcards and how they helped form women’s communities. He pairs his thoughts with the contents of 7 such cards written to two homesteading sisters in Montana. http://ow.ly/2EcLSI
Upon graduating from The University of Montana, I entered graduate school at Portland State University for my Master’s degree in Book Publishing and I freakin’ love it! The learning curve is steep with practical knowledge and career direction, and the content and culture is a bookworm’s dream. I am also an intern at the publishing house Ooligan Press, the associate editor for The Portland Review, and contribute to both business blogs. I am also an editorial intern for brass Media. I learn new things every day and feel confident about actually making a living surrounded by things I love.
At The University of Montana, I had two pieces published in The Oval, the first of which was my very first published work. I consider it a turning point. From there I was a copy editor and columnist for The Montana Kaimin, and the combination of my Oval publications and my Kaimin portfolio opened the door for my future in Portland. I have such great respect for the Oval and what it contributes to the English department. For me, it will always be my beginning.
NEWS: The deadline for submitting to the Oval for this year has been extended to FEBRUARY 22, 2014. This decision in no way reflects the quality of submissions already received.
So, UM undergrads take notice: there is still time to submit for a chance to have your work published in a very popular and attractive (not to mention well regarded) literary magazine: our very own Oval. Send us your best, and hurry up about it! We look forward to seeing what you’ve got.
