The Center for Great Plains Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has issued its annual call for submissions for its literary and arts journal, "Plains Song Review."

This is the 11th year that the center has sought submissions from college students and the community. The journal includes poetry, essays, fiction, photographs, and black and white art. Past issues have included interviews with well-known Nebraska writers and photographers such as Ted Kooser and Joel Sartore.

Katie Sisneros will continue as this year's editor. Formerly of Gothenburg and now a graduate student in the UNL English department, Sisneros will be assisted by an advisory board of UNL students who will help review and accept the submissions.

Sisneros has created a blog to expand the journal by providing a medium for its readership and writers where anyone can discuss writing, ideas, and events. That blog is at www.plainssongreview.blogspot.com.

Interested contributors should send a printed copy of their work with a file in Microsoft Word or RTF. E-mail submissions will be accepted. Photographs and other illustrations should be sent with a printed copy and a 300-dpi TIFF image. All submissions must include a cover letter and short biographical note, and complete address and contact information. Mail contributions to Katie Sisneros, Plains Song Review, Center for Great Plains Studies, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, PO Box 880214, Lincoln, NE 68588-0214.
