Community is a critical part of where and who we are as Mayland Community College.  The local areas belong to a place and a culture that ties people, families, and communities in a complex and deeply woven way. Gateways is a community of artists whose writing and visual art come together to create something unique and beautiful. In the 2015 edition, Mayland invites individuals to join this group, with poetry, prose, photography and more, in celebrating community. There are many kinds of community, both common and unexpected, and the hope is to see a vast array of possible interpretations and adaptations of this theme.
The deadline for submissions for the 2015 edition is October 31, 2014. Further submission guidelines, including a contributor’s form, can be found at or by emailing
