Join our Writing Team

Covering the people, places, and culture of the Cascadia Movement and our bioregion.

The Cascadia Underground is a people and movement powered media center and online space. If you have an article or photograph you’d like to share, would like to record a podcast, make a video, or just share an opinion – we’d love to hear it!

How to Submit Writing and Photos.

If you’re interested in joining our production team, email:

cascadiaunderground [at]

We’re always looking for compelling stories, great journalism, and photographs that express what it’s like to be a human being in the Pacific Northwest. As a new publication, we’re interested in working with both new and established creators.

If you’d like to pitch a feature article, profile, or interview, please send an email using the form below to briefly describing your idea and your relevant experience. No public relations letters or promotional materials, please.

If you have a story already completed, please feel free and attach it. For poetry, please submit between 1 and 4 poems. You may include a link to previous work or a personal website. We’ll try to respond within 60 days, but due to the number of submissions received, we can’t guarantee a response to all queries.

We’re looking for work by and/or about Cascadia, the Cascadia Movement, our bioregion, or news that is important for us living here, or our inhabitants. We’re a regional publication and seek to publish work by writers living in or from Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, southeast Alasksa, northern California, Idaho, and western Montana, but are also happy to feature guest posts by those outside of the area if it’s relevant.

We encourage submissions by Indigenous writers and writers of color.

In the text of your submission, please include all contact information, including email, mailing address, and phone number.
