Due to damage from Hurricane Laura, we are unable to fill orders for back issues at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we look forward to resuming normal operations soon. Our current issue is still available for order.


We will be open for submissions of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction for our Spring 2022 print issue soon. We will be open to submissions of all types to Boudin, our online home soon as well.

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 fiction and poetry for online publication. We welcome all genres and genre-mixing experimental fiction. We are looking for fiction we believe explores new and interesting dimensions of being human, and we will be publishing the work we truly believe in as we get it.

The word limit for all submissions is 20,000.

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.

**Please note that our website is currently moving servers. We will begin publishing again at some point this fall when our website is fully functional. 

Our current issue, #58 (2021) is available for purchase for $10. Please include your mailing address in the comments when ordering. Unfortunately we cannot fulfill orders internationally except for contributors.

Contributors to Issue 58 (2021) may purchase additional copies of the issue here for $5.
