the basics

Wilder Voice is Oberlin College’s magazine for creative nonfiction and long-form journalism. Wilder Voice was founded in 2005 under the name The Journal of Proper Thought. We also publish several short dispatches, one faculty submission, one piece of fiction, and a smattering of poetry.
