• Perceptions Literary Magazine


  • Perceptions is a magazine of the arts which has existed at MHCC since 1969. The magazine is produced by students who register for WR291, 292, and 293, The Literary Publication, a three-term class.

    In the fall, students solicit submissions from the campus community and the outside community. After submissions are received, students read and choose which works best reflect their chosen vision of the magazine. Working with students from the graphic design program, the editorial team decide on the design, paper and overall look of the magazine. The students continue to work as a team for the next two terms. During the winter and spring terms students work with staff in the print shop who take the graphic designers’ plans and implement them. Contributors are contacted and invited to read their works at a reception that the students plan for the spring term. Awards are given for the best work in a genre: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, art, photography, music, and film.
