RAIN Magazine

Rain Magazine welcomes submissions Sunday, Oct. 15, through Thursday, Feb. 1, for the 2018 edition. Rain welcomes submissions from the public as well as Clatsop Community College students and area high school students.

General submissions of art, fiction, poetry and non-fiction will be considered, as well as submissions centered around the theme of “survival.” Potential contributors should feel free to interpret this theme as they see fit.

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. Please make sure to label your work by its appropriate genre (poetry, fiction, non-fiction) 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. Note whether you intend one or all of your submissions to be considered for the 2018 theme section.

Email submissions are greatly preferred. RTF is the preferred format for written work. TIFF or JPG files (at least 300 dpi) are preferred for artwork. Email to 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.
