High Plains Register seeks submissions of previously unpublished fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, music, drama, visual art, and cross-genre works. Our eclectic tastes vary each academic year according to our editorial team on staff. Authors of works chosen for publication will receive a free contributor’s copy.

We generally accept submissions each year from May 1 – December 15.

Our submission window is currently closed

The High Plains Register is 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.

To inquire about existing orders for copies of the 2020 High Plains Register, or to make a new order, please contact Kristin Abraham at kabraham@lccc.wy.edu.

Our staff thanks you for your continued interest and support. Please check back often for updates!
