About fishladder (Grand Valley State University Journal of Student Art and Writing)

fishladder is a student-run publication at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. We publish students' fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, drama, photography, and art. Students from across all disciplines in the university are encouraged to submit work in all styles, genres, and forms. fishladder aims to select the best, most artistic work for publication. The journal accepts submissions throughout the GVSU Fall semester, with a deadline at the end of the December finals week. Submissions are carefully considered by our student staff, and final decisions are made by our editors. The yearly print edition is unveiled every April, with copies available in Lake Ontario Hall and across the Allendale campus. The online edition will be updated annually and archived continually. You can find the online version of our magazine at the following link: http://scholarworks.gvsu.edu/fishladder/
