Note from Marlene: Good luck! “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” is a Cajun expression meaning “Let the good times roll!” I heard this expression often while visiting New Orleans. It may have nothing to do with Bayou Magazine. I just wanted to tack it along with my Good Luck wishes for you! I hope you are having a good time writing. And submitting!
