New Plains Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The New Plains Review seeks quality creative works ranging from poetry and prose to plays/screenplays and music and short films.

Established in 1986, New Plains Review is a student-run literary journal published in spring and fall through the University of Central Oklahoma’s New Plains Student Publishing. Keeping with the university’s goals of both excellence and diversity, it is our mission to share with our readers thought-provoking, quality work from a diverse number of authors and artists. We receive hundreds of submissions from all over the world, and the authors and artists we publish range from well-known to the soon-to-be-discovered.

While we do not have any specific guidelines for style or subject matter, we look for written works that are thoughtful and compelling. We also accept audio and video submissions for online exclusive publication only. Contributors can submit multiple submissions, but we will not accept previously published work. By submitting, contributors give NPSP permission to publish works in print and online. Authors and artists with accepted submissions to our print journals receive two free copies upon publication.

We are currently reading for our Fall 2023 issue.
