A Note on Poetry Submissions

Our current poetry catalog includes collections focused on Louisiana’s history, culture, art, society, politics, economics, the French language, faith, ethnicity, and the environment. We are also open to themes that depart from regional poetry, but encourage submissions from poets with some connection to Louisiana. We publish authors at various stages in their careers, some of which include former Poet Laureates, award-winning poets, Pushcart nominees, Cave Canem and Fulbright Fellows, scholars, as well as debut authors. Poetry collections do not have a minimum page requirement for full-length submissions, but we do not currently publish chapbooks. We look forward to reviewing your work.
