Garfield Lake Review
One of Olivet College’s proudest accomplishments is the Garfield Lake Review, an annual literary and visual arts magazine.
The Garfield Lake Review (or Garf) is a production of Olivet College students interested in creative writing, art work and music. It began in 1971 as a project in a creative writing class by Professor James Coleman, Brent Danielson, James Hudson, Andrew Johnson, Amy Leithauser, George Palmenter and Norm Wheeler.
From its inception, the policy for the Garfield Lake Review has been to accept submissions from students, staff and alumni, with students serving as an Editorial Board. Submissions are due in mid-October and the magazine is published in April of each year.
This is a student publication. The editor is selected through an interview process conducted by the Campus Media Board, and serves for one year. In that time, the editor gathers a staff, seeks submissions and then supervises the judging, editing, design and publication the magazine. It is a hands-on practicum a creative endeavor that gives students editing and management experience.
