Submissions are currently closed; thank you to everyone who submitted their work! Watch this space for updates on when our next submissions period will open.
The Gateway, the University of Alberta’s official student magazine, is excited to announce that we are seeking submissions of art and design-related work and creative writing to include within our magazine.
This year we have decided to incorporate themes for each monthly issue, which are meant to not only allow for a range of creative interpretations, but also provide structure to the overall organization of the magazine. We encourage you to look at the respective themes (listed below) when submitting work.
(Your work may fit into or be inspired by one of these themes, but does not need to be.)
- December: Cozy, warmth, home
- January: Women’s stories, feminism
- February: Love and sex
- March: Expressions, pride, LGBTQ+
- April: Politics
Although we may continue to send calls during the academic year, our goal this summer is to collect more submissions so we can plan accordingly for each issue, and also provide more feedback to students along the way. Our goal with this call is to provide space within our magazine for the showcase of excellent student work.
If your work is selected, you will be contacted and specific technical arrangements will be discussed for the best way to present your work. Submissions will be selected by The Gateway‘s Editor-in-Chief, Managing Editor, and Art Director.
All undergraduate students with creative writing (including but not limited to poetry, short stories, creative nonfiction, personal essays, etc.) are welcome to submit as many pieces as they’d like. There is no minimum word count, but pieces should be no longer than 3,000 words. Because of space restraints, we will be more likely to include shorter pieces. Please feel free to submit new or previous work.
Art, Design, and Photography:
All undergraduate students with work that is related to art and design (including but not limited to printmaking, painting, furniture, photography, illustration, etc.) are welcome to submit as many pieces as they’d like. Please feel free to submit new or previous work.
Please direct any questions to Art Director Jessica Tang at [email protected].
