Our Mission

New Plains Review, a student-run literary journal at the University of Central Oklahoma, is proud to have received 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 a selection of fantastic works from a diverse number of authors and artists throughout 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

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

We are interested in creative works that are thoughtful and compelling, but otherwise we do not have any specific guidelines for style or subject matter.

We do accept simultaneous submissions. We do not accept previously published work. Your submission gives us permission to publish your work in print and online. At this time, we do not pay upon publication.

Full submission guidelines are available at Submittable.


The submission window for the Fall 2017 issue is closed.

The deadline was
September, 15th.
