Founded in 1948, The McNeese Review is an annual publication of the College of Liberal Arts, the Department of English and Foreign Languages, and the MFA in Creative Writing at McNeese State University, Lake Charles, Louisiana. Funding is provided by the McNeese State University Foundation through an endowment established by Mr. and Mrs. William D. Blake, Mrs. Violet Howell, and Howell Industries, Inc.

For 64 years the Review was published as a scholarly journal in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. In 2012 it was converted to a literary journal format to publish poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, interviews, and original artwork. We also post brief pieces on the journal’s blog periodically.

The editor of the Review is John Griswold, who heads up the fiction side of the MFA at McNeese State, with McNeese MFA candidates staffing both journal and website.
