Community Writes – Transitions





The summer has officially drawn to a close and we are in a time of transition—somewhere between those warm sun-soaked days and the crisp clutch of autumn. The leaves are turning color, dazzling our senses. The light is fading. And there’s a sense of renewal, reflection and anticipation in the air.

How will you embrace the magic of transition?

Write about the new season—or the transition to a new job, a new home, a new life. Beginning October 1 through the end of the year, Community Writesan online publication of the Hoffman Center for the Arts, is accepting contributions on the topic of “Transitions” from writers with ties to the north Oregon Coast.

The program is open to all—whether you are a published writer or not—and  contributions will be published on a rolling basis on the Hoffman Center website. Contributors also will be offered an opportunity to read their work at periodic open mic events. Fiction, nonfiction, essay, memoir and poetry are accepted, and there is a $5 fee per submission.

Submissions should not exceed 800 words, and should include an image, if possible. More information about the program and how to participate is available here.
