La Roche University’s literary magazine released a call for submissions for their spring 2022 edition this morning.

At 9:22 a.m., the La Roche University Academic Affairs Division sent out a call for submissions to all students for Nuances literary magazine. Twice a year, the student editors of Nuances read through student submissions and choose the best pieces to published in the spring of each year.

Nuances had its first release in 1983 under Sister Rita Yeasted’s supervision. Colleen White typed and printed the first release. Denise Berry designed the cover that circulated until the magazine became digitized in 2002.

This year, Student Editors Krista Lukaszewicz, Steven Munshower, and Madeline Riccardi are searching for students who enjoy writing fiction, creative nonfiction, flash fiction, or poetry.

According to their call for submissions, the publication “is a great way to enhance your portfolio or resume, as well as a chance to distinguish yourself creatively.”

Students should email submissions for the Spring 2022 release as Word documents to no later than Jan 28, 2022.

Although the publication, under Dr. Joshua Bellin Ph.D.’s advising, does not accept every submission, writers of every level and skill are welcome to participate.

This semester acts as Bellin’s first as the advisor for La Roche’s premier literary journal.

Before Bellin, Dr. Michelle Maher Ph.D. served as the magazine’s editor since 1991. The fall 2021 semester marks Maher’s last semester before her retirement. She passed her faculty advisor torch onto Bellin beginning in October.

The full submission guidelines are available at:

“If selected,” the call for submission states, “your work will be published in the spring 2022 issue of the magazine. We don’t pay, but your prize is being published.”
