ASTORIA — Rain Magazine, a Clatsop Community College publication, welcomes submissions through Friday, Feb. 1, for the 2019 edition.
Rain welcomes submissions from the public as well as CCC students and area high school students.
All general submissions of art, fiction, poetry and nonfiction will be considered.
Instead of a theme for this year’s issue, the magazine’s 50th, Rain would like to collect anecdotes from those who have worked on the magazine and have been published in the magazine for a special section celebrating the magazine’s long history on the North Coast.
Former staff members are especially encouraged to share their experiences or get in touch to be interviewed.
Submit no more than three items total, including poems, photographs, high-quality (at least 300 dpi) digital images of original artwork and prose less than 5,000 words in length. Make sure to label your work by its appropriate genre (poetry, fiction, nonfiction) in a cover letter or on the manuscript.
The ability to print color is limited, so artists submitting color images should indicate if the image may appear in black and white. Include name, address, phone number, email, title, medium and a two-to-three-line biography with all entries.
Email submissions are greatly preferred. RTF or Docx is the preferred format for written work. TIFF or JPG files (at least 300 dpi) are preferred for artwork.
Email work to email@example.com. Include your full name along with genres and titles of submissions in the subject line of your email message. Submissions without proper contact information will not be considered.
You can also mail submissions to Rain Magazine, Clatsop Community College, 1651 Lexington Ave., Astoria, OR, 97103.
Every year Rain Magazine is produced by the Writing 270: Literary Publications class, which includes instruction in editing techniques and Adobe InDesign, the industry standard for book design.
The class meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays at noon during Winter Quarter.
