2019 - Oxford American


Oxford American is a nonprofit arts organization and national magazine featuring Southern writing and documenting the complexity and vitality of the American South. In 2013, the Oxford American helped create the restaurant and cultural venue South on Main at 1304 S. Main St. in Little Rock. Oxford American has presented hundreds of concerts and other events, much of those for free, at the restaurant and throughout Central Arkansas over the last six years.

The magazine has featured the original work of many distinguished authors, while also discovering and launching the careers of the most promising writers in the region. In 2017, the Oxford American launched the Jeff Baskin Writers Fellowship, which provides financial support for an emerging writer to complete a debut book project during a nine-month residency in Central Arkansas. The organization has won four National Magazine Awards, including the 2016 Award for General Excellence in the category of Literature, Science and Politics, and other honors since it began publication in 1992. The Oxford American is published in partnership with the University of Central Arkansas.
