More than a few are writers themselves, although not necessarily literary writers. The editors are dedicated to bringing the best literature possible to C/Oasis.

One thing we are proud of is that we draw from an audience that comes from a variety of professions and backgrounds. We get people from the military, business, government, as well as academia. We even have had submissions from state prison.

We are looking for innovative writing that has a bite to it. We are looking for impassioned arguments or fantastic voyages. We aren't looking for diatribes or any particular political point of view.

We are looking for several distinctive modes of writing.

  1. Opinion pieces:
  2. Personal Essays: Evocative, personalist, complex, wise observations etc. Think Thoreau.
  3. Commentary: Take on something in the real world and deal with it, enhance it with resources, and keep it under 2000 words.

We will pay anywhere from $10-20 for any piece accepted for publication. Poems are usually paid $10 and long articles $20 but it's not a hard and fast thing.
