Seeking submissions for cover art for The North Coast SquidFrom the Manzanita

The Manzanita Writer’s Series coordinators are pleased to continue the collaboration with the North Coast Citizen to publish a second annual literary magazine.

The North Coast Squid showcases work of writers and artists who live on the north coast or have a strong connection to the area.

The second magazine will publish in February 2013 in time for the February Manzanita Writer’s Series event.

“We’re looking for color art or color photographs for the cover that represent our area in some way AND that will draw readers to pick up the publication,” says Kathie Hightower, cofounder of the Manzanita Writers’ Series. Art should be sent as a jpg of a least 300 dpi resolution. The North Coast Squid editorial team will make the final selection.

“We’re also looking for art and photography submissions to accompany literary content within the publication,” says cofounder Vera Wildauer. Art categories include black and white photos and line drawings.

Submissions for consideration are due November 30, 2012. Artists may submit three images each of black and white photos or line drawings (scanned and in jpg form.) For the full submission guidelines go to and click on Squid in the Blog Categories list.

Artists can find copies of the first Squid available for sale in many coastal retail outlets. Fifty percent of the cover price goes to the Hoffman Center to help with operational costs that provide programs like the Manzanita Writers’ Series.

The Manzanita Writer’s Series is a program of the Hoffman Center, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing arts, education and culture to the community. Information on all their programs is at
