The Black Fork Review

The Black Fork Review is a literary journal featuring poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction. The journal is edited by MFA students who lead teams of undergraduate editors in each genre. The journal merges the work of the AU community (students and faculty) with work submitted by writers in the wider literary landscape.

Graduate Publishing Assistantships

A limited number of graduate publishing assistantships are available for poetry students in the Master of Fine Arts program who work with the Ashland Poetry Press.

Graduate publishing assistantships are available to students who have taken ENG 631: Mentorship I and have selected poetry as their primary genre. Students are chosen for assistantships during the fall semester; decisions are based on faculty recommendations and a cover letter sent to the managing editor of Ashland Poetry Press.
