Started in 1964, The Plum Creek Review is Oberlin's oldest literary and arts magazine. It is devoted to publishing as many different creative forms as possible, including, but not limited to, prose, poetry, plays, translations, artwork and photography. Though it spent a little more than a decade (1997-2008) as Enchiridion, it has spent the past three years under its original name.

As a student organization, the magazine is open to anyone, allowing creative writing students as well as those with an extra-curricular interest in literature, arts, and publishing to take part in the entire process of creating a magazine, from reviewing incoming submissions, to designing layout, to editing. In addition putting out the magazine every semester, programs such as write-ins, readings, and workshops are organized by The Plum Creek Review throughout the year.

The Plum Creek Review's goal is to foster the creative act, to give literary and non-literary artists a chance to see their work in print and to share it with others, and to bring together people for whom these things are important.

Many accomplished writers have gotten their starts in our little magazine including two recent winners of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry (Carl Dennis, 2002, and Franz Wright, 2004).
