As a celebration of our alumni, each month we will highlight a new book written by one of 
Oxford's 
North American-based alumni.

Our December 2021 book is "These Bodies" a novel by Morgan Christie (St Catz, 2015).

Morgan Christie's work has appeared or is forthcoming in Room, Aethlon, The Hawai'i Review, Obra/Artifact, Blackberry, Little Patuxent Review, Alternating Currents, as well as other publications. Her writing has been anthologized in such presses as BLF Press's Black to the Future and the Resonance Network's Black Freedom Beyond Borders: Re- imagining Gender in Marvel's Wakanda, which underlined the feminist, socio-political, and racially effective prose she seeks and continues to craft. Morgan's off off-broadway play "When We Talk About Watermelons" won the 2017 Player's Theatre Prize during its run in New York, NY. Her poetry chapbook "Variations on a Lobster's Tale" was the winner of the 2017 Alexander Posey Chapbook Prize (University of Central Oklahoma Press, 2018) and her second poetry chapbook "Sterling" was released in 2019 (CW Books). She is the winner of the 2018 Likely Red Fiction Chapbook contest and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net. Her first full-length short story collection 'These Bodies' was published by Tolsun Books (2020), and her most recent poetry chapbook ‘when they come’ was released by Black Sunflowers Press (2021) and is featured in the Forward Arts Foundation’s National Poetry Day exhibit.
