These works not only feature UHD students, but also creatives worldwide.

The Bayou Review" offers a unique opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience on everything that has to do with a literary and arts magazine," said Cesarco Eglin. “This internship allows students to learn a variety of skills, which include editing, organizing and running a magazine, designing, and much more.
