Call For Submissions

Posts on the theme "Owe"

We are now accepting submissions for Posts (short essays of 400 words or fewer) for our Spring 2017 magazine on the theme "Owe." Explore a contemporary or historical story about indebtedness. Share an experience about a debt that you owe or that is owed to you. Tell us about the complex nature of loyalties, responsibilities, and obligations—individual, communal, or otherwise. 

Check out Posts from our current issue, then send your submission to by February 26, 2018. Submissions may be edited for space or clarity.

Cover art ideas for "Owe"

If you're an artist and have work that we might consider for the Spring 2018 issue, on the theme "Owe," we'd love to know about it. Please familiarize yourself with our publication, then send us the following by March 30, 2018:

  • A high-resolution digital image (300 dpi at 8” x 10”; scans or photographs, JPEG or TIFF)
  • Your name, the title of the work, the type of media, as well as contact information (email and phone number)
  • Description of the relationship of the image to the theme

Please consider the constraints of a magazine cover (e.g., vertical orientation, nameplate, and cover lines). We are most interested in works by Oregon-based artists.

Submissions can be sent to or by post to

Oregon Humanities magazine, 
921 SW Washington St., Suite 150, 
Portland, OR 97205.
