The Cafe Stage - Submitting an article

If you would like to submit a story for this column, we invite you to do so. Just write up your article, 1200-2000 (or more) words, and make sure it is proofed, and spell checked (just as if you're submitting a short story for publication in a magazine), and fill out the submission form below. Here's some additional points and required info.

  • Articles must be at least 1,500 words in length, 2,000 words or more preferred. Microsoft Word, or RTF (Mac) formats are the only formats we'll accept.
  • Articles must be triple proof read - proof read by you, by someone you know, and then by you again. A polished, easy flowing article has a better chance of being published. Proof read for style, grammar, and flow. English only, but US, UK, or even Canadian English is acceptable.
  • Articles must be topical, informative, entertaining, educational, or a combination of all four. Articles that are essentially promotional pieces for a commercial venture or company will not be published.
  • An "identifier photograph" must be submitted with the article - this is a photograph that sets the tone for what the article is about. Requirements are a square image, at least 300pixels square or larger.
  • Other photographs (with tag descriptions optional) that complement the article are also encouraged.
  • Include a short 1-2 sentence biography of yourself, written in third person.
  • Include a photo of yourself, in portrait style, at least 100 pixels tall by 75 pixels wide, or larger.
  • Include your contact information as requested on the form.
  • Items marked with an asterix * are required. All other fields are optional.

Column Description
The Cafe Stage is your chance to get something off your chest. Think of it as a speakers' corner, but in a virtual cafe. As long as the subject even closely relates to coffee, espresso, cafes and coffee culture, it's a potential article we want to put up on the CoffeeGeek site. Visiting authors can also write on subjects near and dear to them.  Rants, raves, reminisces, information, it's all good.
