We'll shortly be looking at all of the stories we've published between 15 October 2012 and 15 October 2013 in CaféLit, the e-zine that supports the work of the Creative Café project. It contains short stories that are linked to a drink. If you're in the mood to drink hot chocolate you may find a story that goes with that. And if you’re reading CaféLit on your phone or tablet in a café or looking at a copy of one of the “Best of” books, then that café actually ought to be in the project. Do send us details!
CaféLit has recently published quite a few what we call 100-worders. These are pieces of fiction 100 words long. If we can get up to 100 of these, and it’s looking likely, we’re going to publish a little square book. Are you up for the challenge? Find details here.
CaféLit anyway is always looking for more conventional short stories. Submission details here.
We publish CaféLit in two different places – on a dedicated web site but also on Blogger. Blogger enables us to judge which are all-time most popular stories and on 1 January 2014 we’ll be announcing first, second and third place. There will be a prize!
You can order individual copies of the Best of CaféLit 2011 and 2012 from the links below. From 1 November there will be a special Christmas offer on orders for five copies plus, mixed and matched between the two titles.
Happy reading, writing and coffee drinking!
