Celebration of Ten Years of the Manzanita Writers’ Series
November 17 | 7:00pm

Please join us in celebrating ten years of the Manzanita Writers’ Series
and the publishing accomplishments of fellow community members
The Manzanita Writers’ Series is celebrating ten years of programming in 2018. On November 17, 2018, at 7pm at the Hoffman Center for the Arts, we will host a special evening, celebrating all the local writers and those with a strong connection to the Oregon coast, who have published something since our start in 2008. That could be a short story or article in a literary magazine, a piece in the Word & Image book, or your own book, whether self-published or published by a small or large publishing house.
The evening will include a slide show with images from the ten years of events.
We’ll have readings about favorite memories and the impact the Writers Series and spin-off writing opportunities like Writing Workshops, Writing Lounge, the Squid Literary magazine, online courses, and Word & Image have had. Writers are invited to submit 900 words on the topic to vwildauer@gmail.com. Nine pieces will be selected for the evening’s reading and all will be published on the Hoffman’s web site.
And there will be cake, of course.
“It’s not a small thing to see your name in the table of contents of a publication.”
–Local community member, Carl Whiting, as he read a piece he got published in the 6th edition of the Squid Literary Journal
Cloud & Leaf will be on hand to sell published books. Authors are welcome to sell their own books at the event (those they have published in the last ten years), or to coordinate with Jody at Cloud & Leaf for sales at the event and ongoing in her store.
Come celebrate with your community on November 17, 2018.
