The Kevin Koch Writing Prize

The Kevin Koch Writing Prize recognizes the legacy of Dr. Kevin Koch (’81), Professor of English. Dr. Koch, prolific author and beloved creative writing professor, who has been editor-in-chief of The Limestone Review, the Loras College literary journal, since its inception, as well as its predecessor, The Outlet, for many years has always taken great pride in the excellence of his students’ writing.

The Kevin Koch Writing Prize will be awarded each year to a student whose poem, essay, story, or other work is judged by the editors of The Limestone Review as the best piece of writing published in that year’s issue.
