Contest Information and Forms
Expressions is the yearly publication featuring poetry, art, photography and short fiction from students representing each of DMACC's campuses. The publication and distribution of
Expressions is timed to coincide with our Celebration of the Literary Arts in April of each year. While it showcases winners of the DMACC-sponsored annual literary awards, all DMACC students are invited to submit original art or writing for consideration."
A panel of faculty select the winners of the contest, and a student editor works with faculty to arrange the entries published in
Expressions. The magazine is published with the assistance of the DMACC Graphic Arts Department. For additional information, please contact
