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.  Submissions for the March 2018 issue will be accepted September 1 - October 31, 2017, according to these guidelines.

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. Participants for the 2018 project will be selected by teams of past contributors. The submission window is March 1 - April 7, 2018.
