What we want:
We’re looking for thought-provoking and entertaining stories, though
ones which might be a tad different from what you normally read in a
woman’s magazine. They should be the sort of length that would make easy
reading whilst you drink a cup of coffee, even if you linger a while,
but without you needing to rent-a-table.
So, perhaps, no more than 3000 words. Shorter stories and flash fiction are naturally very welcome.
How to submit
Send your submission firstname.lastname@example.org. It should be in the body of the email. Please put “CafeLit Submission” in the subject line.
What happens next
We’ll read your story. If we like it and plan to publish it we’ll let
you know and if we don't like it we'll let you know. If your story fits
our imprint and is of publishable quality we will keep it in an
archive. If you manage to place your story elsewhere, please let us know
