Some are Just Lost

By Kristen Allen | March 13, 2019

I picked up the worn copy of what would become my favorite book, not knowing yet the relationship we would have. I read the first page, and by page two knew that this was love. Page seven had me in wonder, page eighty in awe, and page one twenty in tears. I closed it at midnight and marveled it until dawn. I was twelve, and the first chapter book I had ever read was J.R.R. Tolkien’s, The Hobbit. At fourteen … READ MORE…

Advocating “Dissent”

By Sarah Chambers | March 6, 2019

I come from a rural community that has a decidedly conservative perspective on most social and political topics. I establish this not out of criticism, but for clarification of the background that first shaped me, and to contextualize my academic and publishing experiences. When I embarked on my career as a student of English, to the best of my knowledge, the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies minor was not even available yet at the University of Central Oklahoma.

5 Booktubers to Get You Started

By Kellyn Eaddy | January 13, 2017

It’s no secret that I can waste plenty of time on YouTube. It’s a black hole. I start off with a “just for a few minutes” mindset, checking what some of my favorite Youtubers may have uploaded, and then five hours later, I’m learning how to do Yoda costume makeup for absolutely no reason. YouTube is a community of communities where there is something for everyone: makeup lovers, gamers, musicians, belly dancers in training, you name it. Book lovers are not excluded, … READ MORE…

Short review of the Ethnic American Literature course at UCO in Edmond, Oklahoma

By Joshua Barnett | December 20, 2016

The University of Central Oklahoma has recently hired Dr. Iliana Rocha, whose debut book, Karankawa, won the 2014 Donald Hall Prize in poetry. Along with her Creating the Poem class of her inaugural year, she also taught Ethnic American Literature. It may be safe to say to the reader that Oklahoma has a strong cultural vibrancy strongly linked to Indigenous People, and we certainly must not forget the struggle of our African-American brothers and sisters who suffered one of the … READ MORE…

Good Day!

By Joshua Barnett | December 19, 2016

New Plains Review started thirty years ago with a general purpose of helping students at UCO help get published, but soon realized a prestigious journal resists limitations. With the invention of the internet, literature took an abrupt shift and simultaneous submissions took a steep hike. New Plains has understood the importance on keeping with the times while maintaining the prestige in being a worldwide literary journal, and are in our first times of reaching out for submissions beyond poetry, prose, and visual … READ MORE…
