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.
