The Bayou Review

​​​The Bayou Review is a literary magazine published by students of ​​the University of Houston-Downtown. It includes poetry, fiction, essays, reviews, and visual art. The magazine is primarily a venue for the publication of works by UHD students, but faculty, staff and outside ​submissions are also encouraged. The goal of the magazine is to emphasize the arts and humanities at the university and to provide a forum for students who are interested in creative writing. Selected issues also feature literary and visual arts by contributors outside the university community.​​
