Based in Cheyenne, Wyoming, The High Plains Register (est. 1989) is a student-produced literary and arts journal that juxtaposes the work of emerging and established writers and artists from Laramie County Community College, the United States, and around the world. 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 nation. It is our intent to inspire thought, emotion, and creativity in our local readership and beyond.

NOTICE: Operations are currently on hiatus as we undertake important curricular and organizational modifications; we hope to return to normal operations in spring 2022.  Submissions will be closed until further notice, and we will not publish a 2021 issue.  The HPR office will remain unstaffed until our return.
