Event Description:

Manzanita Writers’ Series celebrates the launch of the 5th Edition of the North Coast Squid Literary Journal at 7pm on Saturday, October 8. The event will be held at the Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita. Admission is free.

The fifth North Coast Squid literary magazine showcases work of writers and artists who live on the north coast or have a strong connection to the area. Seventy-seven writers submitted 160 pieces. Thirty-eight submissions were chosen by outside judges. Judith Barrington judged poetry, Cari Luna judged fiction and Brian Benson judged non-fiction.

The category for young writers was judged by the editors of Tattoo Magazine, a national award-winning high school literary and art publication based in Shoreline, WA, and previously advised by Andy Barker, a member of the North Coast Squid editorial team.

The Squid includes art and photography from local artists as well.
    
The expenses are covered through fundraising, in-kind donations of design time, and with Squid sales.

The release event will feature selected author readings from the North Coast Squid, as well as a gallery showing of some of the photography and art published in the magazine.  There will be refreshments—including cake!

The North Coast Squid will be available for purchase at the event, as well as at every Manzanita Writers’ Series event throughout 2016 and 2017. A number of retail outlets along the coast will also carry it. Proceeds of the $7 cover price will go to produce future editions of the magazine.

The Manzanita Writers’ Series is a program of the Hoffman Center for the Arts and will be held at the Hoffman Center (across from Manzanita Library at 594 Laneda Avenue.) Further information is available at hoffmanblog.org online or contact Kathie Hightower, kathiejhightower@gmail.com.
