Submission Opportunities for Writers!

Along with the Hoffman’s Poetry Contest in January, there are a couple more North Coast opportunities for writers to submit their work.  Follow the links for specific requirements and ways to submit.

Cannon Beach Library’s Annual Writers Read Celebration 2020 is calling for submissions now.  This year’s theme is “Views from the North Coast”  This is an opportunity to write about your relationship to the North Coast. What is your vision of the North Coast? What draws you here? How do you feel connected to what you see?  The deadline is January 17, 2020.

The Seaside Public Library Foundation will be publishing its third annual short story anthology to support library programs. Writers are invited to submit a short story (1500 words, maximum) with a theme of books or libraries.

Winning entries will be featured at the Write on Seaside! Fundraiser this spring, where writers will have the opportunity to read an excerpt from their story and speak about their writing process.

Writers should include at least two characters in the story that event attendees can bid on to name for the final version of the story, which will be included in the anthology. Animals and mythological creatures tend to be audience favorites.  Deadline is January 31st, 2020.

Rain Magazine, the publication put out by Clatsop Community College has extended its deadline to February 15th, 2020.  They’re accepting submissions for all writing genres, as well as art.  This issue’s theme is “Broke.”
