Limestone Review Published Online Only for First Time

The Limestone Review, Loras College’s annual student literary/scholarly publication, is available exclusively online for the first time in its history.

The magazine features student writing in the area of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction and scholarly essay. Students submit work for the magazine and get involved in the reading and writing process. Faculty members edit the final publication.

“We have some good student writers, not just in recent years but going back over a long time,” Kevin Koch, Ph.D., professor of English and faculty editor of The Limestone Review, said. “I’m very proud of all the work that appears in all four genres of the magazine.”

Works from The Limestone Review have won at least one first place, second place or honorable mention in the Delta Epsilon Sigma (DES) national writing competition for 27 consecutive years.

The Limestone Review is the merger of a series of publications in Loras’ history, including The Spokesman, Outlet and Alpha.
