Fall 2012 Issue
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 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.
Submit your poetry, fiction, or creative nonfiction to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 our Editorial Guidelines section of our website for more details.
