2022 Poetry Contest

For our submittable, click here.

We ask that writers submit only one submission at a time. We hope to respond to all submissions within 6 months. If you do not receive a response within six months, please check on the status of your submission in Submittable; if you encounter any problems, email us at rougaroueditors@gmail.com. We ask that writers submit only once every 4 months.

Include a brief, third person bio in the “Cover Letter” box that we may use should we choose to publish your work. Please also include your email address with your submission.

We do not accept previously published work. Simultaneous submissions are welcomed, but please withdraw immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. Also, if Rougarou has published your work, please wait 1 year before resubmitting in that genre.

Note: University of Louisiana at Lafayette English Department faculty and graduate students are ineligible for publication in Rougarou.

If you have specific, genre-related questions or inquires, please email us at rougaroueditors@gmail.com. Specify the genre in the subject field.
