The Center for Great Plains Studies has issued its annual call for submissions for its literary and arts journal, "Plains Song Review."

This is the 13th year that the center has sought submissions from college students and members of Great Plains communities. The journal includes poetry, essays, short fiction, and black and white art or photography. Past issues have included interviews with well-known Nebraska writers and photographers such as Jonis Agee, Ted Kooser and Joel Sartore.

Kaitlin Ek will continue as this year's editor, assisted by an advisory board of UNL students who will review and accept the submissions. A senior English major at UNL, Ek has created a Facebook page for the journal and writes a blog to provide online opportunities for journal readership and writers where anyone can discuss writing, ideas, and events. That blog is at

Interested contributors to the journal should send a printed copy of their work with a file in Microsoft Word. E-mail submissions will be accepted. Photographs and other illustrations should be sent as 300 dpi TIFF files on a CD along with printed copies of the images. All submissions must include a cover letter, a short biographical note, and complete address and contact information. Mail contributions to Kaitlin Ek, Plains Song Review, Center for Great Plains Studies, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, PO Box 880214, Lincoln, NE 68588-0214.
