The Oleander Review started in October 2006 as a project of two ambitious undergraduate English students. After speaking with a friend and editor of Michigan State University’s Red Cedar Review, Amanda Nichols decided that the University of Michigan needed such a publication. That is, prior to the founding of the Oleander Review, a student-produced publication of writing and art from both students and established writers did not exist at UM. With the direction of faculty advisor Keith Taylor, Amanda and Sarah Sala met and quickly transformed Amanda’s idea into a reality. Oleander Review publishes fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry and visual art.
