Maya Literary Magazine is Drexel University’s only publication for undergraduate literature and artwork, a medium through which writing, art, and photography collide and enhance the flavors of one another. Since its founding, Maya has striven to showcase, appreciate, and provide a creative outlet in a sea of technical and scholastic writing. 

If you are an undergraduate student at Drexel with creative work, we are the place for you! Submit your poetry, art, photography, short stories, essays, and everything in-between. See our “Submit Your Work” page for more guidelines, or contact us at
