Garfield Lake Review seeks drama


Deadline: October 13, 2023

SUBMISSION FORM - requires free signup to Duotrope

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 theme is humanity. Through growth, emotions, relationships, and accomplishments, we show what it means to feel human. This theme is meant to be ambiguous; how do you interpret the human experience?

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 ensures that no author will be judged by race, creed, sexual orientation, or political ideology.

Technical DetailsProse 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 5000 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.

The only guideline we have content wise is that we would prefer works that do NOT contain epic acts of gore, hate crime, or hate speech.

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.

The Garfield Lake Review is the annual literary and visual arts magazine produced by The University of Olivet students, and it is a proud member of thr Olivet College Media Board. We produce a print journal and post an online edition on our website. Contributors in the continental U.S. may choose to receive a complimentary copy and purchase additional copies. Other contributors may pay shipping and receive their copy.
