High Plains Register

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The High Plains Register pledges to publish outstanding, original literature, music, and visual art that captures the unique cultures of the West, while also featuring fresh, modern perspectives and ideas from across the world. It is our intent to inspire thought, emotion, and creativity in our local readership and beyond.

We accept previously unpublished, original poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, drama, music, and visual art. Authors of works chosen for publication will receive a free contributor's copy.

We are generally open to submissions each year from May 1 to December 15. Submissions will only be accepted via Submittable.

Any submission that does not follow guidelines is subject to automatic rejection.

Submission guidelines for each genre can be found at the bottom of this page only when the submission period is open and active.

Upon publication, HPR claims First North American Serial Rights; after publication, all rights revert to the author, with the understanding that HPR will receive credit if the piece is published elsewhere.
