OASIS Journal began in 2002 when I was taking a class at OASIS in Tucson, Arizona from one of the two best creative writing teachers I’ve ever encountered: Dan Gilmore, who has published short stories, poetry, and a novel. For more information about OASIS Journal and Imago Press, please see the interview at Allyson Latta’s website.
