Information about your publication: Bayou Magazine is a biannual literary magazine with national circulation published by the Creative Writing Workshop at the University of New Orleans. Each issue contains short fiction, non-fiction and poetry from established, award-winning authors as well as emerging writers. In keeping with the aesthetics and goals of the Creative Writing Workshop, Bayou is especially interested in discovering and showcasing fresh literary voices. The journal awards yearly contests in both fiction and poetry. And in one issue every year, Bayou features the winning one-act play and short story from the annual Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival Competitions. We are a member of the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses, and annually nominate several published works for the Pushcart Prize, O. Henry Award and Best American Essays. Supported by the University of New Orleans English Department and the UNO Foundation, Bayou is a non-profit journal for the arts.
