Cassandra, the literary magazine for the Grant Campus, is published on an annual basis. Its title derives from a figure in Greek mythology, Cassandra, who was given the gift of prophecy by the Greek god, Apollo. She could foretell the future, see what others could not, and know absolute truth. Because this gift, however, also changed her, making her cynical and fearful, some legends have it that Apollo eventually allowed the gift of compassion to enter her soul. With this second gift, Cassandra was determined to make her truths known through writings. Soon wise mortals recognized these truths as poetry.
Cassandra's goal is to publish those poems and short stories, along with art work and photographs, which deal with not only women's issues, but also humanistic issues. Cassandra is a forum for many different backgrounds, both female and male, full and part-time students, day and evening students. Cassandra also sponsors an annual poetry contest with cash prizes.
