Students can take part in several different campus publications by serving on editorial boards or submitting their work for inclusion.
New Orleans Review is a journal of contemporary literature and culture, publishing new poetry, fiction, nonfiction, art, photography, film and book reviews. The journal was founded in 1968 and has since published an eclectic variety of work by established and emerging writers including Walker Percy, Pablo Neruda, Ellen Gilchrist, Nelson Algren, Hunter S. Thompson, John Kennedy Toole, Richard Brautigan, James Sallis, Jack Gilbert, Paul Hoover, Rodney Jones, Annie Dillard, Everette Maddox, Julio Cortazar, Andrei Codrescu, Gordon Lish, Robert Walser, Jack Butler, Robert Olen Butler, Michael Harper, Angela Ball, Joyce Carol Oates, Diane Wakoski, Dermot Bolger, Roddy Doyle, William Kotzwinkle, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Arnost Lustig, Raymond Queneau, Yusef Komunyakaa, Michael Martone, Tess Gallagher, Matthea Harvey, D. A. Powell, and Rikki Ducornet. Work published in the New Orleans Review has been reprinted in Best American Nonrequired Reading, New Stories From the South, The Pushcart Prize’s Best of the Small Presses, The Utne Reader, Poetry Daily, Verse Daily, and O. Henry Prize Stories anthology. New Orleans Review is published twice a year, and distributed nationally and internationally by Ingram Periodicals.
For more than twenty years, the literary journal Revisions has offered students the opportunity to share their creative writing and visual arts with the rest of the Loyola community. Significantly, students not only provide the content for the journal but take responsibility for every step of its production. A staff, open to students of all majors, evaluates and selects from numerous submissions of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, scripts, screenplays, visual arts, etc., while graphic design students work to create the best cover and layout for the issue. Finally, editors gain valuable administrative/financial experience by requesting budget allocations from the Student Government Association and doing business with a professional printer. The journal is published annually. To participate in Revisions in any capacity—as a contributor, staff member, or graphic designer—please contact the current editor-in-chief at LoynoRevisions@gmail.com or the faculty moderator, Professor Robert Bell, at email@example.com.
Now in its twentieth year, The Reader's Response: Essays and Studies by Students of Literature showcases the single best paper from each of the English Department's literature, film, and theory courses, as selected and submitted by the course professors. Submissions by students themselves are now also encouraged. This annual publication is sponsored by Sigma Tau Delta, English honorary association, generously funded by the Student Government Association, and published by the English Department. A student board of two to four members edits the journal, with the guidance of a faculty moderator. Submissions are made in the form of a hard copy of the paper and a copy on computer disk, accompanied by the student author's biographical sketch and by an introductory note from the instructor explaining the nature of the course and outlining the writing assignment that the paper fulfills. Publication is not limited to English majors or minors. Past editorial boards have maintained a policy of publishing only one paper per student author per volume. However, several students have published two or three times in this journal during their undergraduate years at Loyola.
The fall issue of Provocative (a quarterly mostly Loyola student run magazine) is now available for free. Contents of Provocative are focused on interpretations of the word "provocative" and include art, photography, poetry, non-fiction and fiction.
