Call to Latté Contributors, Past and Present

By The Editors

Latté contributors, past and present – please contact us!

We’re still in the process of putting our full archives (15 years worth!) on our revamped website. We’ve lost touch with many of our contributors, and would like to get your updated bio and contact information.

Writers, Poets, Reviewers: If your work is already online, check it out and let us know if there are any persistent typos or formatting errors (this may be especially true for poems).  In the earlier days of the web, our options for online typesetting were limited, and many works in our database “lost” their formatting.  In some case, we may not have your original piece in digital form, so we’d love to get it directly from you.

Artists: If your work was featured as a past cover of any print edition of Literal Latté, we’d like to host an online gallery of your work, linked to the archived issue(s) that your work appeared in. And if your work is currently being displayed in galleries or museums, we’ll be glad to share the news with our readers.

Here’s what you should do:

  1. Fill out our contact form, and choose “I am a Literal Latte contributor” as the subject line.
  2. Give us your updated bio (one paragraph, please) in the message box, and let us know if there any news you like us to share with our readers — publications, books, forthcoming readings, gallery showings, etc.
  3. Let us know if you have a personal website or online gallery you’d like us to promote to our readers.
  4. Prepare an author photo for your profile page!  We’d prefer an actual photo of you, but if you’d prefer, we can use any image you like (within reason).  Photos should be approximately 120px by 175px, in color or b&w.  (If you need to crop or resize a photo, you can easily find a free online tool to do this, such as this one. )
  5. We’ll tell you how to access your Latté account, and you’ll be automatically notified (and can respond) when visitors post comments about any of your contributions to Literal Latté.

We’re looking forward to getting back in touch!

About The Editors

Before 1994, New York City, the “publishing capital,” lacked a community literary paper featuring mind-stimulating stories, essays and poems for consumption by New York editors, agents, writers and readers. Literal Latté filled the void–debuting in June 1994 and offering 30,000 FREE copies of its literary brew in New York’s coffeehouses, bookstores and arts organizations. Reaching ten times as many readers as traditional literary magazines, Literal Latté caffeinated careers, bringing writers from around the world into the offices, homes and hands of New York’s publishing professionals, writers and readers. The founders knew that good writing, in a friendly and easily available format, would be as popular as cappuccino in a cafe in New York City.

    Re: Work Submitted for Contests

    If you select a work as a prize winner; does the author retain copyright and/or have the right to publish it with or as part of her other work?

    I’m registering to this site because it intriques me, and I’d like to submit poems here. J. Evans-Campbell

    I love the feel of this site. It’s inviting and has that warm display that makes me want to dive right in. Once I read more of the contents, I will write again.
