Founded in 2002, Bayou Magazine is a biannual, international literary magazine published by The University of New Orleans. We publish poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and the winner of the annual Tennessee Williams One-Act Play Contest. Our mission is to publish exceptional, exciting work by both established and emerging writers.
Writing that first appeared in Bayou Magazine has been short-listed for Pen-America Awards and the Pushcart Prize, and it has been named in the notable essays list in The Best American Essays.
