Jessica Lee Poetry & Fiction Editor  
Heather Radick Poetry & Fiction Editor I am a sophomore majoring in the ever-dwindling field of Language and Literature, and double minoring in Professional Writing and Sociology. In addition to editing for Nuances, I am Managing Editor of the Courier newspaper and a peer tutor at the Writers' Center. I like cats, cooking, and rambling about Shakespeare.
Lainey Standiford Poetry & Fiction Editor I'm a senior Journalism major currently serving as President of Sigma Tau Delta. I am a contributing writer for La Roche Courier, and by the time you read this, I will be gladly accepting donations of free puppies, and donuts for life after college. I am coffee-fueled and obsessed with my dogs and their adorable butts.
Lauren Villella Poetry & Fiction Editor I am a junior psychology major, with a professional writing minor. In addition to serving as an editor for Nuances, I am also an editor for La Roche's student newspaper, the Courier. Creative writing has always been an interest of mine because it is cathartic, enlightening and one of the truest windows to the soul. As Edgar Degas said, "Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."
