Hoffman Center for the Arts

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


The Hoffman Center for the Arts, based in Manzanita, Oregon, is a non-profit organization dedicated to the arts, culture, and education. The HCA supports two projects dedicated to the work of writers and artists on the north Oregon Coast. 

We are excited to announce our January Poetry Contest! The first 50 North Coast poets to submit during January 2019 will compete for a $100 prize. The winning poem will be featured in the 2019 issue of the North Coast Squid. Click here for more details. Please follow instructions carefully when submitting.

The North Coast Squid is a literary magazine showcasing work of writers and artists who live in our community or have a strong connection to the area.  The 2018 issue is now available in bookstores and coffee shops on the North Oregon Coast. Submissions for the 2019 issue will be accepted during the month of June 2019. 

Word & Image pairs 12 writers and 12 artists for a collaborative project that results in an exhibition and a book of linked artwork and writing. Word & Image will be on haitus for 2019. Participants for the 2020 project will be selected by teams of past contributors.
