The Red Hawk Review is Gateway’s first literary magazine highlighting the creative talents of Gateway students. The magazine gives all Gateway students an opportunity to express themselves in creative ways, as well as a chance to see their work in print. The magazine will publish once annually.
Editors from each campus will select submissions for publication. The Red Hawk Review will feature six to eight poems from each campus, and three works of prose from each campus. The magazine will also feature up to five works of visual art.
The top three overall submissions for each issue will be honored with the following prizes:
First Prize: $250 Gateway Foundation tuition voucher
Second Prize: $125 Gateway Foundation tuition voucher
Third Prize: $50 gift card to Follett bookstore
Submissions for the 2014 Red Hawk Review have been reviewed and selected students will be notified by April 1. The final 2014 publication will be available by April 15, 2014.
