Our Mission

New Plains Review, a student-run literary journal at the University of Central Oklahoma, proudly receives hundreds of submissions from all over the world.

Keeping with the University of Central Oklahoma’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 around the world.

We are eager to help these creators broaden their audience and reinforce the importance of the arts in our everyday lives.

Submit Your Work

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

We are interested in creative work that is thoughtful and compelling. Otherwise, we do not have any specific guidelines for style or subject matter.

Please do not include your name or information in the document of your submission.

We do accept simultaneous submissions. We do not accept previously published work. Your submission gives us permission to publish your work in print and/or online. At this time, payment is two contributor copies, with the exception of the Sherman Chaddlesone Flash Fiction and Alexander Posey Chapbook contests.

Full submission guidelines are available at Submittable.
