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.  

Submissions for the magazine are accepted annually throughout the fall semester.


We have been in print since 1971 when a group of students and dedicated faculty met often at the Garfield Lake Review Tavern and dreamed up our journal. 

The Garfield Lake Review accepts submissions of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, art, or any other form of original work. Submissions are chosen through a blind screening process, which ensures that no author will be judged by race, creed, sexual orientation, or political ideology.
