The Garfield Lake Review

The Garfield Lake Review is the annual literary and visual arts magazine produced by Olivet College students, and it is a proud member of the Olivet College Media Board. The Garfield Lake Review prides itself in accepting a wide selection of fiction, poetry, and visual arts from the Olivet community and beyond. This year’s GARF is looking for submissions that follow the theme of duality. Send us your unexpected endings, your highs and lows. Send us anything juxtaposed between light and darkness. Living is a thrill - show us how it is for you.

We accept art in any form that may be reproduced on a page. We are looking for work that is engaging and striking. Fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, drama, photography, and other art are all welcome. All submissions are reviewed anonymously, regardless of form, which assures that no author will be judged by race, creed, sexual orientation, or political ideology.

Technical Details

  • Prose submissions should be double-spaced and not include your name in the body, header, footer, or file name.
  • We accept files in the following formats: docx, doc, and rtf. Submissions with strong visual components like comics or graphic narratives should be submitted as .jpg or .png files.
  • Please name your files with your submission's title (NOT your name) -- file names like "Story 1" make file management difficult. Prose submissions are limited to 3000 words. We do accept excerpts of longer work and may publish the longer piece on our website--please include and label the excerpt and the entire work in your submission.

Multiple and Simultaneous Submissions

  • Individuals may submit up to five pieces total, in any combination of media. If your pieces are the same genre, you may put them in the same submission. All pieces will be reviewed individually.
  • Our review time is short: we will make decisions by the beginning of December, so we ask that you wait until you hear back from us before submitting your work elsewhere. However, please let us know immediately if your work is no longer available.
