Louisiana Review Published

The eleventh issue of The Louisiana Review, a magazine featuring poetry, short stories, essays, reviews, plays and art has been published by the Division of Liberal Arts on the LSU Eunice campus.

The Louisiana Review is an art and literary journal published yearly. Fiction, poetry, and black & white art by Louisiana authors are featured in the publication, as well as Louisiana and Southern U.S.-themed pieces from contributors around the country and the world.

"We try to offer a showcase for Louisiana authors and artists, as well as for Louisiana or Southern United States-themed pieces by authors and artists from any location," said Dr. Billy Fontenot, associate professor of English at LSU Eunice. "We've published first-time authors and well-established authors."

Fontenot is the editor, while Dr. Diane Langlois, associate professor of English served as this issue's art editor and Dr. Jude Meche, assistant professor of English, is the Review's poetry editor.

"Volume Eleven of The Louisiana Review contains work by Louisiana artists Robert Dan Gray, Jr., Chestee Harrington, Becky O'Neal, Dan Junot, and Karen M. Schmidt. Short stories by Martha B. Sheldon, Lola Ross, Alysia Anderson, Brad Cobb, Peter Barlow, and Lisa Morriss-Andrews also appear," said Fontenot. "Stories in this issue concern an elderly couple moving into a houseboat on Bayou Teche, a shy young boy's first hunting trip, a professional wrestling match with mystical themes, and a homeless man finding lost money on the street."

Copies of the Review are $5, available from the editor, 337-550-1315 or by sending a check for $8 for the cost of the book and shipping to The Louisiana Review, P.O. Box 1129, Eunice, LA 70535.
