"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."

Student editors determine the entries that will be published in Expressions. The magazine is published with the assistance of the DMACC Graphic Arts Department. For additional information, please contact Michael Bryant, Urban Campus, by emailing
