Parnassus is the annual literary arts magazine of Northern Essex Community College in Haverhill, Massachusetts. The magazine has been in publication since 1965, and was a bi-annual publication until 2008, when it switched to a yearly publication, with issues released at the end of each year's spring semester in May. Parnassus is a free publication, and copies can be found at the Haverhill campus of NECC while available.

Parnassus is edited by students of NECC, and its contents feature student work in the areas of fiction, poetry, creative non fiction, photography, and other assorted artwork. The magazine is currently run as a club at NECC, and membership in the editorial staff is open to all current NECC students in either the fall or spring semesters each year.
