The Oxford American announced today that Roger D. Hodge, who took over as editor-in-chief of the Little Rock-based magazine in late 2012, has stepped down to take a position as national editor of The Intercept, an online publication launched last year by Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, and Jeremy Scahill. Managing editor Eliza Borne will serve as interim editor of the Oxford American and Hodge will stay on as editor at large, according to a press release issued this morning. Borne is a former Oxford American intern and has been an editor at the magazine since February 2013. Previously she worked as an associate editor at BookPage.

“Roger’s contribution to the magazine has been tremendous," publisher Ray Wittenberg says in the release. "I think he’s done some of his best work with us. He’s positioned the Oxford American as one of the premier literary magazines in the country. We’re excited about the coming transition but Roger will be missed.”

“I have loved editing the OA,” Hodge says. “Working with this talented community of writers, artists, and editors has been among the most rewarding experiences of my career. We’ve created an extraordinary magazine, and I look forward to reading the Oxford American for many years to come.”

The magazine released the details to its new Fiction Issue last week, which was guest-edited by the writer Jamie Quatro. The issue includes stories by David Means, Jill McCorkle, Antonya Nelson, Chris Drangle, Micah Stack, April Ayers Lawson, as well as nonfiction by Will Blythe, Wyatt Mason, Harrison Scott Key and Chris Offutt. The issue will be on newsstands June 9 but can be pre-ordered now at their website.
