Hey Readers!


Happy October! It’s our favorite month of the year, and we’re starting off with an exciting announcement. For the first time ever, OyeDrum is proud to present our Best of the Net nominations! Congratulations to everyone! It was tough making these decisions, since there were so many strong works to choose from. Thank you to all of our contributors! It was a pleasure looking back and re-experiencing your talents.

Happy Autumn,
