Submissions are accepted year-round for Southeastern Louisiana University students. Students may submit as many works as they wish but not all may be accepted for publication. No work that has been previously published, distributed, or accepted for publication or distribution elsewhere shall be eligible for publication in the Manchac Review. All submission information and release authorization sections must be completed in their entirety. Multiple authors or artists working on an individual piece must each fill out separate forms.
Submissions may include, but are not limited to, short stories, novel excerpts, vignettes, flash fiction, poetry, plays, screenplays, monologues, musical compositions, lyrics, films and videos, photography (including photos of ceramics and sculptures), line art, and prints. Novels, novellas, and reviews will not be accepted. Printed word materials should adhere to a 12-point, readable font and be double-spaced (unless artistic or structural needs call for otherwise).
Upon submission, all works are subject to peer review with individual editors or instructors representing each genre and judging for quality, content, originality, and creativity. Students whose works are conditionally accepted may be required to meet with an editor to discuss necessary revisions prior to publication.
Please see the complete Submissions Guidelines for further information.
