From the Editors

Hello and welcome to the Dark Matter website! We are delighted to be launching the 2020-2021 issue with a request for submissions of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, photography, and visual art submissions for the upcoming academic year. It is our sincere intention to provide a creative outlet and voice for the students and staff of West Shore Community College—in spite of the broader challenges we are facing nationally.  To submit your work for consideration, please first enroll in the Dark Matter Canvas shell at

In addition, the Creative Writing Club is making one of its goals this year to assist students with their submissions to Dark Matter. If you would like to join the club, please feel free to reach out to me at for more information.
