The stories are grouped conceptually by the date they were written, or more personally by a less obvious element, but never by theme. They are mostly micro fiction. Issue number 1 consisted of stories written right after the author's mother died of cancer. Most are sad and sexualized tales of love gone good, then bad. Or little fragments of death and loss.
Selections from Dorothea were reprinted in volume nine of Zine Yearbook, released in 2008.
