Publications Overview


Lewis Voices

Voices is the annual publication by Rho Lambda. The publication first started in 2009 and was called Write On!  The magazine was renamed Voices in 2010.  The final transition occurred in 2018 when the magazine was renamed Lewis Voices and became a journal with juried submissions. The original issue offered a collection of works from English majors and members of Rho Lambda Chapter. However, starting with the first issue of Lewis Voices, the magazine is now a platform for all Lewis University undergraduate and graduate students. The magazine hosts creative, rhetorical and professional writings along with fine arts, such as photography and paintings. All Lewis students are welcome to submit work.
