The McNeese Review welcomes submissions of unpublished short fiction, poetry, literary nonfiction, interviews, and original (black-and-white) art and photos. We value clarity of image, complex worldviews, genuine emotion, character, coherency, compression, and all the right words put in interesting combinations. While vampires are fine, ditto spaceships, please only send genre-inspired work if the vampire or spaceship in question brings something new to the literary party.

We're excited to read your work! Please read the relevant section below for print or blog submissions.

Print Journal Submissions

We are now accepting submissions for the Issue 52 of the print journal. Please use our Submittable portal (click here to access) and follow the instructions for the appropriate genre of your work.

McNeese Review Online Submissions.

The McNeese Review Online accepts submissions continuously on a rolling basis. Because of the medium, these pieces tend to be shorter (prose, for instance, up to about 1,000 words max). McNeese Review Online accepts submissions in the following categories:

[of books, especially those underrepresented in the media]
Interviews [mostly of writers, poets, publishers, creative writing teachers, et al]
Rec Room [where writers and poets recommend other artists]
Louisiana [and the Gulf region]

We’ll consider re-posting quality work posted or published elsewhere. If we take it first we only ask for a 30-day head start before you publish it again.

Payment in all cases will be the satisfying glow of a job well done, our eternal admiration, and as wide and growing an audience as we can provide.

We're accepting work now. Please use our Submittable portal (click here to access) and follow the instructions for "McNeese Review Online" at the bottom of the page.

No material published in The McNeese Review or its accompanying website may be reprinted or reproduced, in whole or in part, without the permission of the authors. We ask for ourselves only that The McNeese Review be credited with first publication.

Thank you!
