San Diego's Coffeehouse and Cafe Newsletter, ESPRESSO, invites submissions of essays, poetry, short stories, and commentary for consideration and possible inclusion in its yearly magazine, Musings, which showcases local cafe writers and artists' works. Submissions of all kinds are welcome and may cover any subject matter.
To submit: To prevent ESPRESSO editors from suffering excessive eye strain, all submissions should be on paper and sent via US Postal Service to their address below. Submissions should include cover letters with brief comments on anything about your work(s) the editors need to know. The cover materials must include your name, contact—including phone—and affirmation that work is original. Submission is free and unlimited.
For work to be returned, it must be accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. For those works chosen, ESPRESSO will contact authors and invite them to send electronic files (if appropriate) after the closing deadline.
Deadline for submission: November 1, 2017.
Publication of Musings will occur in December 2017. Its format will resemble ESPRESSO and have a print run of 5,000 units duplicating the first run of the newspaper in 1992. ESPRESSO will celebrate publication with a reading of works by their authors to be held in coffeehouses throughout San Diego.
See your work in print and be heard the old-fashioned way: ink on your fingers and reading aloud in front of an appreciative crowd.
