New Plains Review
Call for Submissions
We are interested in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction that is thoughtful and compelling, but otherwise we do not have any specific guidelines for style or subject matter. We no longer arrange issues with thematic topics, but be sure to check out our Special Section online for announcements as each issue usually contains a section focused on a specific topic relevant to Oklahoma and the Plains.
We do accept simultaneous submissions. We do not accept previously published work. Your submission gives us permission to publish your work online. At this time, we do not pay upon publication. Each submission is, however, automatically eligible for the editors' prize. $500 Editors’ Prize available for winning submission.
Submit your poetry, fiction, or creative nonfiction by August 15 to shayNewPlains(at)gmail.com (replace (at) with @). Allow 6-8 weeks for response. Attach submissions in either Word (.doc or .docx) or Rich Text Format (.rtf). Please include type of submission (poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction) in the subject line.
Please see the Editorial Guidelines section of our website for more details.
