Call for submissions: NEW PLAINS REVIEW theme issue

29 November 2008

The NEW PLAINS REVIEW seeks writing on the theme of “Service” for its spring 2009 issue. We invite you to interpret “service” broadly: military and community service, school service requirements, jury duty, all forms of volunteering, religious services, food service, customer service, serving a subpoena or tennis ball, etc. We’re interested in poetry, fiction, essays and creative nonfiction that is thoughtful and compelling, and we’ll reprint previously published work (provided the author owns the copyright).

NEW PLAINS will also run a “letters” column of short, informal pieces relating experiences of “service.” The editors are looking for detail, honesty and brevity in these letters.

Deadline is February 16, 2009. Submit by email (as a Word attachment) to Executive Editor Douglas Goetsch at or send hard copies to NEW PLAINS REVIEW, Submissions, Box 184, University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond, OK 73034. Please put email, phone and postal contact on the first page of your submission.
