Writing and artistic contributions from throughout Western Oregon and Washington are compiled by Clatsop Community College each year. These submissions are put into magazine/review form, and the College invites the authors in for an event to debut the magazine. The audience gets to hear the authors as they read their articles.
This is the information from the Rain Magazine event coordinator;
