Myriad showcases poetry, short stories, and art work from students of El Camino College. The journal, edited and designed by English 98 students, strives to reflect the multifaceted diversity of our college community. The editors of the journal are committed to provide equal opportunity for all individuals regardless of ethnic group identification, national origin, religion, age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, or disability.
The policy of the El Camino Community College District is to provide an educational and employment environment in which no person shall be unlawfully denied full and equal access to, the benefits of, or be unlawfully subjected to, discrimination on the basis of ethnic group identification, national origin, religion, age, sex, race, color, ancestry, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, or retaliation in any program or activity that is administered by, funded directly by, or that receives any financial assistance from the State Chancellor or Board of Governors of the California Community College.
History of Myriad
What we know now as Myriad, El Camino College's creative arts journal, has come a long way since its inception in 1961. Then called Impressions, the magazine was founded by a group that called itself The Literary Roundtable. The magazine has gone through a name change and countless physical transformations, but their intent has stayed the same: to provide an outlet for the college's creative community.
Today, ECC's artists, poets, writers and photographers are invited to share their creative endeavors with Myriad readers throughout the South Bay. With many thanks to the Humanities Division and The Foundation for their continued generosity, the Myriad staff is able to create a respectable, polished publication celebrating the creativity between (and on) its covers. In fact, each edition since 2005 has a presence in the Library of Congress!
Since this is the first year Myriad has an online presence, there is little to be found on the site for now. We hope that in the Myriad site's future, comprehensive archives of works can be made available to online visitors -- especially after every last copy of the print edition is snatched up.
