Tips From the Editor

Read Bayou; there’s no better way to find out what we’re looking for. We accept material written in a variety of styles and about a broad range of topics. Keep Fiction and Nonfiction under 7,500 words. Flash fiction and short-shorts are welcome. We consider no more than 5 poems at a time.
