Poetry contest ahead

Lana Ayers, judge of the poetry contest.

The Manzanita Writers’ Series invites writers to enter a judged poetry show in January. Submit poems of 30 lines or less, on any subject. Up to three poems will be accepted in a single submission document.

Each submitter must state a clear connection to the North Oregon Coast in the biographical statement that accompanies the submission.

Contest judge Lana Ayers has been publishing the Concrete Wolf Poetry Chapbook Series since 2001. In 2010, she created MoonPath Press to publish poetry collections by Pacific Northwest poets. She has authored nine collections of poetry and recently released her first novel.

The contest will be limited to the first 50 poets. The submission window runs from Jan. 1-Jan. 31. All submissions will be anonymously judged by Lana Ayers. The winner will be notified in March.

All submissions must be made online at hoffmanarts.org; $7 entry fee. 

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 Ave. Further information is available at hoffmanarts.org.
