FishHook is the University of Southern Indiana's student-run art and literary journal, showcasing the top poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and visual art of USI students. 

We at FishHook strive to promote artistic expression across all areas of the student body, and we are dedicated to providing opportunities for USI students to show off their favorite original works. Each year we publish a new and unique edition of our publication, and after our brief hiatus due to COVID-19, we are thrilled to start searching for new additions to our 2020-2021 publication! 

Pick up a FREE copy within the Orr Center or the third floor of the Liberal Arts Center.
