The Chimaerid Publishes 2018 Edition of Literary Magazine

The CGS Art and Literary Magazine: The Chimaerid has published its 2018 edition with art, poetry, and prose by College of General Studies students.

The Chimaerid (K-EYE-MI-RID) showcases the many artistic talents of CGS students, including poetry, photography, artwork, and more. Published each spring, the magazine is titled after a group of fish known as the chimaeridae, which are named after a Greek mythological beast composed of parts from many animals. Given the variety of artistic talents of CGS students, the magazine emanates a similar essence.
