We are always looking for volunteers with original voices from our community to contribute to our hyper-local newspaper. We write for and about the inner-Northeast area of Portland.

Got an issue, an idea, or just a knack for words? Let your voice be heard by the 22,000 households in North and Northeast Portland that receive our paper.

Writing experience not required. It's your voice that matters. 

For more information contact our newspaper team at: communications[at]

We also publish blog posts on our site and release a monthly newsletter with local events and opportunities.
