Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Plane Tree is a biannual online journal based at Indiana State University and run by faculty and students in creative writing. Formerly known as Grasslands Review, Plane Tree is a reimagining of the print journal in an online space. We are excited to move to a fully digital platform with the opportunities to publish innovative work that may not be possible in print. Genre work is more than welcome and encouraged. Wow us with whimsy, reimagine the familiar, introduce us to the strange.

Submissions Policy
Please email submissions to planetreejournal at gmail dot com, attached as .doc, .docx, or .rtf files and include a brief bio of 100 words or less. We can only accept submissions by email. Plane Tree encourages simultaneous submissions. If your work is accepted somewhere else, let us know as soon as possible by sending us an email with “WITHDRAW: Last Name, Title” as the subject line. We endeavor to read all submissions as soon as possible, and please allow 90 days for a response. If you have not heard back from us by then, send us a query email with “QUERY: Last Name, Title” as the subject line. Once you hear back from us, please wait until the next submission period to send us more work. Plane Tree asks for first-time publication rights and acknowledgment as first place of publication. We will also archive published work on our website. We regret we cannot consider work from current Indiana State University students and employees and alumni who have graduated within the last three years.
