The delta seeks to publish quality work in poetry, prose, color artwork and sheet music in its annual journal of the arts.  This includes but is not limited to poetry, short fiction, essay, translation, creative nonfiction, interview, literary/art criticism, philosophical treatise/manifesto.

Non-students may submit, but cannot be considered for delta’s annual prizes.  delta is a closed publication and claims no copyright on the works it publishes.  Works printed in delta are still considered ‘unpublished,’ and author/artist retains full publishing rights. All works subject to final approval by author before print.

Poetry, prose and music are selected with careful attention to craftsmanship and technique and to the seriousness of the subject matter.  Delta seeks works of startling originality and experimentation.  The Southern Review avoids extremism and sensationalism.   Art reproductions—color or black and white—of a wide range—paintings, photography, prints, sculpture—are selected on the basis of engaging content and style.

Our literary boards for fiction, poetry and nonfiction consist entirely of LSU undergraduates.  Our art and music selection committees are advised by faculty and non-staff students.
