Rain Magazine, Clatsop Community College’s long-running literary arts publication, welcomes art, photography, poetry, nonfiction, and fiction submissions now through Monday, January 15th, 2024 for the 2024 edition.
Rain welcomes submissions from the public as well as all Clatsop Community College and high school students. This year’s theme section will simmer on the idea of “Food”. This could include relationships with food, meals with loved ones, gathering over food, post-pandemic reconnection, cooking, dining out, cultivating and growing food, cultural identities, memories, travel—however the writer or artist interprets the concept.
All general submissions of art, fiction, poetry, and nonfiction not adhering to the theme will also be considered. 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. The ability to print color is limited, so artists submitting color images should indicate if the image may appear in black and white.
Label your work by its appropriate genre (poetry, fiction, nonfiction) on the manuscript. Please include name, address, phone number, email, title of the work(s), medium, and a 200-word max. artist/author biography with all entries.
Email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your full name along with “2024 Submission” as the subject line of your email message. You may also mail submissions to Rain Magazine, Clatsop Community College, 1651 Lexington Ave., Astoria, OR, 97103, though email is preferred.
