Write for UNTITLED Magazine
Untitled Magazine features student writers, artists, photographers, and videographers.
Are you interested in publishing? Do you enjoy telling stories? Are you a writer, photographer, illustrator, or filmmaker? Have you been looking for ways to plug into the Portland art scene?
Why not contribute to UNTITLED?
UNTITLED Magazine features photography from PNCA undergraduate and graduate students. Student photographers Micah Fischer ’13, Marshall Astor, MFA CT+CR ’13, and Clinton Chambers ’14 keep us up to date with campus events, exhibition openings, lectures, and college life. Recent alums Matthew Miller ’11 and Wayne Bund, MFA ’10 have taken us off campus for in-depth studio visits and full-length feature articles. Their photography plays center stage in our articles and is frequently included in official College publications such as the BFA viewbook, exhibition press releases, on the College’s front homepage, and in advertising print collateral. Student photographs appear in ads in Portland Monthly and in the Oregonian. They’re sent to thousands of readers via our monthly eNewsletters and blown up for College promotional posters.
UNTITLED Magazine is also a terrific launch pad: After seeing the consistently high quality of his work for UNTITLED, the curators of We Tell Ourselves Stories in Order to Live at Museum of Contemporary Craft invited Matthew Miller ’11 to provide photography for the entire exhibition, including the full-color catalog.
Here are two examples of feature photo stories on UNTITLED:
Are you a writer? Do you like words? We’re always eager to get more PNCA writers for UNTITLED. We’ve had students write persuasive and in-depth reviews of exhibitions at our partner institution, Museum of Contemporary Craft. Other students have interviewed artists or professors they’ve admired. They’ve profiled visiting artists and featured student projects and exhibitions. We have a dedicated team of bloggers and are always looking for more.
Writing for UNTITLED is a great way to get your words in front of people you admire. One former student writer, Killeen Hanson, MFA ’12, wrote a short profile piece on Sarah Cloutier’s thesis project. The next day, the article was picked up by KATU News, and the Oregonian. A week later, there was an article about Cloutier in a Chinese newspaper! UNTITLED articles also look terrific on your resume: former UNTITLED student writers now write for Kinfolk Magazine and METROPOLIS.
Here are a selection of a few student features on UNTITLED:
MFA ’13 reviews Betty Feves: Generations at Museum of Contemporary Craft from a ceramist’s point of view.
MFA CD ’13 explores global and local tactical interventions in Design With the Other 90%: CITIES.
We depend on student videographers and sound artists to record and edit lectures, presentations, performances, and other events on campus. And though we haven’t had one posted recently, we used to feature regular interviews with visiting artists through Radio PNCA. Let’s bring it back.
