Submissions Open

Portland awoke to yet another bleak day of trapped smoke, but we’re still eager to read your words!

This fall, we’re looking for work born out of grief and a rage for justice. Work born out of boredom and loneliness, joystick escapism, essential labor, and kitchen-table kindergarten-by-Zoom. We want the fragments you composed mentally while tending your community and the epic you penned in isolation. (But keep it under 5000 words, please.)

We read submissions on a rolling basis throughout the academic year, with a break in November and December.
