Loking Up Gateways 2021

Looking Up: 2021 Gateways Literary Publication


Gateways is Mayland Community College’s annual literary magazine. Each issue has a theme and Mayland students, faculty, staff, as well as community members are invited to share poems, short stories, photographs, and other artwork to be published. The publication is sponsored by generous donors to the MCC Foundation and every copy is offered free to the community. Published in color, Gateways  is a stunning book filled with creativity.

It is amazing to realize that Gateways actually marks its first decade in 2022! As we focus on that incredible milestone and celebrate ten wonderful years of creativity, our 2022 theme will be Looking Back. We hope to have submissions from new contributors as well as from familiar voices who have joined us since all the way back in that first issue. Without our amazing contributors, there would be no Gateways, in the past or in the future, so we hope you will join us in 2022 as we create something beautiful that invites us to reflect on where we’ve been and where we are going. Your writing, artwork, and photography can be part of the next edition. Gateways relies on an array of contributions from our students, staff, faculty, and friends in our community and beyond. So join us in 2022, as we look back over the past decade and think about the one that lies ahead of us.
Our deadline for submissions for the 2022 edition is April 28, 2022. Further submission guidelines, requirements for artwork sizing, and a contributor’s form can be found at or by emailing Please click here to access the Gateways Submission Form 2022. Look back with us by contributing to the 2022 Gateways.
