The Fogdog Review

The Fogdog Review (TFR),  Wright State University's Literary Forum, has been publishing student essays about literature since 1997. TFR also publishes essays about popular culture and film. We welcome submissions of book reviews and film reviews as well as creative nonfiction that engages literature in a substantive way. TFR often features interviews with visiting authors as well as Wright State faculty, and we frequently publish surveys about various cultural and literary trends.  


The Fogdog Review is published annually in May. For more than 20 years, The Fogdog Review was a print journal. Free copies of The Fogdog Review's last print issue (2016) are still available in the fourth-floor lounge in Millett Hall as well as in the Department of English, 470 Millett Hall.

Please note that The Fogdog Review accepts submissions from students who have been enrolled in at least one course at Wright State within the past two years. TFR welcomes Wright State student submissions from September 1 through January 31.

Student editors evaluate individual submissions and make final publication decisions. The faculty advisor removes all identifying information from each submission to ensure the anonymity of the author. If a submission is not accepted for publication, the author remains anonymous to the editorial staff. Submissions should be emailed as Microsoft Word attachments to The Fogdog Review faculty advisor, Dr. Annette Oxindine.

Students may send up to TWO submissions per issue.

The Fogdog Review was established in March 1997 by faculty member Annette Oxindine and English majors Brady Allen, Michael Gallagher, Cynthia Marshall, and Kimberly Wells. Both Brady and Cynthia are now senior lecturers in Wright State's Department of English. The Fogdog Review was a print journal from 1997-2016, and until Wright State moved from quarters to semesters in 2011, it was published twice a year. (Fogdog was on hiatus in 2017 and 2018.)
