Volume 22, Issue 1: Deeper Roots (2013-2014 Issue)
Every year, the staff of The Promethean strives to compile a magazine that tells the story of a greater group of writers. Though all are different, they write about a greater Truth.
This year, we decided to inspire the writers by taking a quote from an American legend, Dolly Parton.
"Storms make trees take deeper roots.
Pain and sorrow are among the stronger of emotions and a great equalizer among all people. Though sorrow makes for mournful works, it is through the hardships and pain that we are better able to experience the goodness that the world has to offer.
When considering pieces to be published in The Promethean, the editors always consider the audience of our publication. We always strive to find pieces that give voice to those that might be struggling with the same issues or those that might have thought they were isolated in their struggles. I believe that we have more than succeeded in this.
Through the bravery of all of our writers and the determination of both Holly Goodrich, Dr. Kim Knutsen and the editors of The Promethean, I am proud to present to you Deeper Roots.
