The Tau is the Lourdes University literary and visual arts journal. We are proud to say that this journal has been in existence since 1959. Historically, The Tau has been a faculty-lead initiative featuring creative writing and visual artwork from writers across the globe. This year, a select group of Lourdes University students will play a prominent role in the selection and publication process.
Please take a moment to peruse the latest edition of The Tau (PDF), which features the creative works of a broad range of writers and artists including many Lourdes University students.
Submissions to The Tau can include poetry (up to 5 poems per author), short stories, and creative non-fiction (up to 3,000 words per entry). We will accept submissions from February 1–May 1 and September 1–December 1. All submissions will be considered through a blind review process.
