Immigrants shine here! Incomer Magazine, a grass-roots Portland, Maine publications seeks writers who want shine a light on the truth that immigrants are and always have been the building blocks of this country. We consider rolling submissions for our quarterly issues—focused on Southern, Maine—as well as our annual, national issue. We encourage authors who happen to be immigrant, refugees, women, global majority/people of color, indigenous, lgbq+, of trans experience, poor, border-straddling, disabled, or otherwise under-represented. Our sweet spot is 800-1400 word nonfiction written with passion; we consider work outside of those parameters as well. Bios, issue-based journalism, celebrations of immigrant success—all immigrant/refugee-related work considered. Let’s connect!
