Thanks to everyone who submitted work to this spring’s edition of Fishladder. Our wonderful genre readers and editors are meeting in the next couple of weeks to discuss your pieces. After the voting process has finished, you will receive emails letting you know whether or not your work will be published in the Spring 2013 edition of the magazine.
A few upcoming events you should know about:
March: On the 1st, the magazine is off to the printer! Sometime in March, we will also be hosting 10th Anniversary Gala. At this event, we will be showcasing all 10 editions of Fishladder, as well as giving attendees a sneak preview of the 2013 edition with readings of selected pieces. Snacks and beverages will be provided. Time and location TBA.
April 12th: The unveiling of the Spring 2013 edition will be held on April 12th! Come on by to meet the staff, hear readings of published pieces, and receive a free copy of the magazine hot off the press. Snacks and beverages will be provided. Time and location TBA.
Also: the website links have been fixed so the 2012 edition of the magazine is now available along the side tabs.
Thanks, submitters, readers, and editors, for your patience and dedication. Happy winter semester, everyone!
The fishladder staff is up and running, and we’re excited to see your submissions! Click on Submit for full instructions.

It’s been pretty quiet around here, because Fishladder has a shiny new website! Please go to http://scholarworks.gvsu.edu/fishladder/ to see the new 2012 issue, as well as archived contents all the way back to our very first issue in 2003. We’ll spruce up this page as a place for editors and contributors (past and present) to talk about writing and editing. In the meantime, check out http://scholarworks.gvsu.edu/fishladder/!
By now, all applicants in fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and drama, should have heard from one of our editors. We’re looking forward to meeting new and returning staff at our first (and only) all-staff meeting on Friday, October 7, at 5pm in LOH 174. Come and learn about the editorial process, and meet your fellow genre readers.
Art and photography students: we need you! Fishladder is still accepting applications from students interested in joining our editorial staff and evaluating submissions of art and photography.

We’d love to have you on board.
