Tonya L. Jones is encouraging diversity of thought in Portland’s literary scene with Women of Color Zines, a group she formed to encourage the creation of self-made publications by local minority women. Jones says she was compelled to create the organization after attending the world’s biggest zine symposium in Portland some years back and noticing a lack of diversity.
