About

Bayou Magazine is a literary magazine with national circulation that prints poetry, fiction, nonfiction and the winner of the annual Tennessee Williams One-Act Play Contest. Edited and curated by the faculty and students of the Creative Writing Workshop, Bayou Magazine's mission is to present exceptional, original writing by both established and emerging writers. While we are always looking for new voices, Bayou Magazine is proud to have featured work from such writers as Marcia Aldrich, Jacob M. Appel, Mark Doty, Marilyn Hacker, Timothy Liu, D.A. Powell, Eric Trethewey, Tom Whalen, and Christy Wise. Writing that first appeared in Bayou Magazine has been short-listed for the Pushcart Prize and named in the notable essays list in Best American Essays.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
