Catch the Vision for Gateways 2020

Every issue of Gateways uses a central theme to draw together our diverse contributors and to inspire ideas for submissions. For 2020, a year whose numbers have obvious connotations, our theme will be Vision, focusing on the many ways we see, understand, and focus. Some kinds of vision involve what we take in and process through sight, but many more kinds of vision rely instead on our insight, that which we perceive, going beyond the images we take in through our eyes. Our vision for every Gateways is one that includes an array of contributions from our students, staff, faculty, and friends in our community and beyond. Without our amazing contributors, Gateways could never fulfill that vision, so we hope you will join us in 2020 as we work together to create something beautiful and unique. We need your writing, artwork, and photography to create the next edition. Please send along your pieces that convey your vision for this issue, as we look to 2020 and beyond.

Our deadline for submissions for the 2020 edition is April 28, 2020. Further submission guidelines, requirements for artwork sizing, and a contributor’s form can be found at or by emailing Join our vision by contributing to the 2020 Gateways.
