Essays/History on WOC/folks of color in Portland
Recipes/Favorite restaurants in Portland (or not 😉

PLEASE write/edit as how you would like to see your piece published..We do try to scan/proofread, but overall your words are your own. Submission lengths can be between 2-3 pages.
Instructions for typing your piece for WOC zine. We want to type so we can cut and paste onto a page that’s 8.5″ tall, 5.5″ long. (our zine is 8 1/2 x 11 paper folded in half). Open a document in Word. When I do this, the default left margin setting, on the ruler at top, is at 0, between a-1″ and a positive 1″. Leave it there. Type your piece, but hit the return when you get as far as the 3 3/4″ mark. This will create a long column of writing (you can also try resetting your right hand margin to stop it there) to cut and paste. Type a sample paragraph. Print it. Cut it out and see if it will fit OK on the size page listed abov
