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. 

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 May 15 - June 30, 2019. Click here for submission details.

January Poetry Contest: The first 50 North Coast poets to submit during January 2020 will compete for a $100 prize. The winning poem will be featured in the next issue of the North Coast Squid

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.
