At this time, we are accepting submissions for themed-issues only.
The current theme is Coffee. The work can be about coffee, inspired by coffee, or have the word ‘coffee’ used within it.
“There are those who love to get dirty and fix things. They drink coffee at dawn, beer after work. And those who stay clean, just appreciate things. At breakfast they have milk and juice at night. There are those who do both, they drink tea.” – Gary Snyder
