Through the poet André Gaillard (1898-1929), the magazine published surrealist writers like René Crevel, Paul Éluard and Benjamin Péret, and ex-surrealists like Antonin Artaud, Robert Desnos. Others published in the magazine included Henri Michaux, Michel Leiris, René Daumal, Pierre Jean Jouve and Pierre Reverdy. Cahiers du Sud also published the poetry of Joë Bousquet.[3] Other contributors included Gabriel Audisio, René Nelli, Simone Weil, Marguerite Yourcenar, Walter Benjamin and Paul Valéry.[4]

In 1945 Ballard drew up a new editorial board with Jean Tortel and Pierre Guerre.[3]
