East Portland Neighborhood News guidelines

East Portland Neighborhood News informs the community about activities and opportunities for involvement in East Portland. If you have an event or activity, or a human interest piece involving East Portlanders, please send in your article. The Editorial Committee selects stories to print as space allows.

The deadline is January 15, for the mid-February, 2018 issue.

Articles must be 350 words or fewer, and may include up to 4 photos illustrating the article. The photos should be high-resolution .jpg images – low-quality cell phone photos generally don’t print clearly. But, we’ll do our best to make your photos work.
