Lou Lit Review is the literary journal at Louisburg College, and is housed in the Humanities Division. Our journal aims to publish place based works of experience from as close as a few steps away from us in Franklin County, North Carolina to as far away as Mumbai.

Submissions are open February 1 - October 31.

Response time is typically 6 months, but occasionally may be as long as 7-8 months. Fiction currently has a longer turnaround time than poetry. Please feel free to query after 6 months by logging into your Submittable account and sending us a note from the system.

We look forward to reading your work!

Ends on October 31, 2019
