Revisions is Loyola's student literary arts journal, founded in 1988, it offers students a venue to publish their creative writing and visual arts and an opportunity to gain hands on experience in editing and publishing. Students not only provide the all content for the journal but take responsibility for every step of its production. A student staff, open to all majors, evaluates and selects from student submissions of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, scripts, screenplays, visual arts, etc. Graphic design students create the cover and interior layout for the issue. The student editors gain valuable administrative/financial experience through requesting budget allocations from the Student Government Association and doing business with a professional printer. The journal is published annually, each spring. To participate in Revisions in any capacity—as a contributor, staff member, or graphic designer—contact the current editor-in-chief at or the faculty moderator, Professor Robert Bell at

Reader's Response

The Reader's Response: Essays and Studies by Students of Literature is a journal of student academic writing. The journal, founded in 1991, showcases the year's best essays from the English Department's literature, film, and theory courses. Essays may be submitted by the professors, and by students themselves. This annual publication is sponsored by Sigma Tau Delta, English honor association, 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 advisor. 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. Submissions include a copy of the essay, the student author's bio, and an introduction from the instructor explaining the nature of the course and the writing assignment that the paper fulfills. For more information about submitting to, or working on, The Reader's Response, please contact faculty advisor, Dr. Ted Cotton at
