There are presently no open calls for submissions.


The award-winning Honors Project Newsletter has now become an academic and literary journal of The Writers Project.

The Labyrinth began as a student-generated newsletter of the Honors Project at College of San Mateo, providing audiences across campus with news about the Honors Project. Now a publication of the Writers Project, the student club associated with the Honors Project, Labyrinth has a new look and function. Dedicated to promoting student writing and fine arts, Labyrinth showcases the intellectual and artistic talents of students in the SMCCCD.

Submissions are open to all SMCCCD students. We believe in equity and access; we encourage all students to submit their own, original work to Labyrinth
