About Yours Truly

Mission & History


Our Mission

Yours Truly is the annual creative arts magazine of Cascadia College, which showcases the original visual art, prose, and poetry of our students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community members. Yours Truly supports the imagination and originality of community voices and visions rarely represented in other campus spaces, promotes the creation of diverse literary and visual art, and celebrates creativity in all forms.


Publication History

Yours Truly is the award-winning creative arts publication of Cascadia College. The first creative arts publication at Cascadia began in 2002 with the first issue of Wetlands Review before it found a more fitting name in 2007: Yours Truly. The name of this magazine digs beneath the surface of this campus to remind people of the foundation on which Cascadia now stands. The 127 acres of land we occupy used to be the Truly Cattle and Dairy Farm.


Submission & Publication Schedule

Yours Truly's call for submissions occurs every Fall Quarter, with pieces selected in Winter Quarter. The print publication is produced in Spring Quarter with a launch event scheduled for June.


Yours Truly was awarded first place in the Washington Community College Humanities Association for the 2008 and 2013 competitions.

Yours Truly is a course

 The Yours Truly course series begins in the 2015 Fall Quarter with foundational work and the call for submissions and ends in Spring Quarter with the printed publication and launch event. Here are course descriptions for the Magazine Publication courses:


Fall Quarter:

HUM 210 (Magazine Publication I) is a 3-credit class that provides students with an introduction to the process of creative arts magazine publication. Students will study common college magazine practices and review and assess sample publications. With instructor guidance, students will develop systemic and technical guidelines for submission; define the scope and reach of the publication; create a specific solicitation and marketing plan involving campus resources, including web and social media promotions; and establish roles and responsibilities of the magazine editorial team. [Registration to add this course ends October 7, 2016]


Winter Quarter:

HUM 211 (Magazine Publication II) is a 3-credit course in which students will study principles of evaluating visual art, poetry, and prose. With the instructor’s guidance through assigned readings on the aesthetics of art and creative writing, students will develop an editorial process to assess writing and artwork submitted for publication during the prior quarter. Using the editorial guidelines created in HUM 210, students will maintain the consistency and integrity of the submission process in order to make editorial decisions about published content in Cascadia’s annual arts magazine, Yours Truly, culminating in a complete rough draft of accepted magazine submissions. [Registration for this course begins in November 2016 and is dependent on your credit status.]


Spring Quarter:

HUM 212 (Magazine Publication III) provides students with an introduction to designing, producing and publishing an annual creative arts magazine that reflects the creative output of the campus community. With the instructor's guidance, students gain knowledge and experience through assigned readings on, and practical application of small press structures, design aesthetics, principles of layout, typography, and color systems. In addition, students learn practical skills in publication budgeting, scheduling, and project management. Students will make all editorial decisions about the design and layout of the previous quarter's selections for Cascadia's annual arts magazine, Yours Truly. Students will familiarize themselves with a professional publication program in order to prepare, proof and edit a manuscript for a designated printer. Students will also participate in a multi-media launch event for the publication in June. [Registration for this course begins in February 2017 and is dependent on your credit status.]
