Founded in 1948, The McNeese Review is an annual publication of the College of Liberal Arts, the Department of English and Foreign Languages, and the MFA in Creative Writing at McNeese State University, Lake Charles, Louisiana. Funding is provided by the McNeese State University Foundation through an endowment established by Mr. and Mrs. William D. Blake, Mrs. Violet Howell, and Howell Industries, Inc.

For 64 years the Review was published as a scholarly journal in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. In 2012 it was converted to a literary journal format to publish poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. In 2018, we launched Boudin, an online section showcasing creative work along with interviews, reviews, craft essays, and any other delicious things that pique our interest.

McNeese MFA candidates staff both journal and website, and play a major role in what gets published and producing each issue.

The editor of the Review is Michael Robins, who leads the poetry program at McNeese. The editor of the Boudin is Dr. Lynn Watson, who leads the fiction program.
