New Plains Review Spring 2017 New Plains Review is published semiannually in the spring and fall by the University of Central Oklahoma and is staffed by faculty and students. We are committed to publishing high-quality poetry, prose, screen/playwriting, short films, flash fiction, etc. by established and emerging writers. New Plains Review started in 1986 as a student publication of the Liberal Arts College of Central State University. They solicited and published manuscripts from students of the humanities. Over the years, New Plains Review has expanded its range to invite writers beyond the university community. We receive hundreds of submissions from all over the country, and the authors we publish range from well-known to the soon-to-be-discovered.
