McNeese Review will be open for submissions of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction for our 2024 print issue from May 15th-August 15th, 2023. 

Boudin, our online home, is currently accepting submissions of poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction until April 30th. We aim to publish several editions during the spring drawn from the works submitted in this period. There may be at least one edition focused on a theme. Stay tuned!

Please note that we do not accept multiple submissions from the same writer within a reading period. Multiple submissions will be rejected immediately unless our editors have specifically requested that the writer submit again.

No material published in The McNeese Review or in Boudin 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. All print contributors receive one contributor copy. We are pleased to also offer a $50 honorarium to print contributors within the U.S. Contributors outside of the U.S. will receive two additional author copies in lieu of the honorarium. 

Contributors to Boudin will receive our thanks and the promise that we'll promote your work far and wide.

We encourage you to simultaneously submit your work while it's under consideration at The McNeese Review. If your submission is accepted by another publication, please withdraw it from Submittable. If you would like to withdraw a single poem or piece of flash fiction but keep the others under consideration, please email us at mreview [at] mcneese [dot] edu.

Please only submit original work. If your work borrows from or quotes another writer, please make explicit mention of this with your submission, giving full attribution to any material you're using from another source.

We look forward to seeing your work!

Boudin is looking for creative nonfiction for online publication. We welcome all forms/genres and form/genre-mixing experimental work. We are looking for cnf we believe explores new ways of experiencing the familiar or familiar ways of experiencing the inconceivable, language that invites and challenges the senses, and anything that is just darn good. We will be publishing the work we truly believe in.

Please submit work up to 10,000 words. Longer work may be considered but an explanation of why it should be considered (think "pitch") be included with the submission of anything over the word limit.

Be aware that we are not impressed with submissions that fail to uphold respect for marginalized groups of any kind. Additionally, we are not interested in work that hinges on shock value alone.
