Fishladder is a student-run journal of art and writing edited and produced by undergraduate students at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. The journal is published annually in April, on the tail end of Winter Semester and features fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art by GVSU students. As a publication, we strive to be inclusive of writers and artists from all the different parts of our campus community. We hope to present a diverse mix of singular voices in each issue so that we might capture the voices of the GVSU student body in all its harmony and dissonance. The journal accepts submissions throughout the GVSU Fall semester, with a deadline at the end of the term in December. 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 archived annually at GVSU Scholarworks.
