Stone Bridge Café: Guidelines & Submission Info

We’ve done flash fiction. Now, to broaden our literary menu, we’re introducing a new platform: Stone Bridge Café.

Every other week, Stone Bridge Café will be serving up a wide spectrum of writing, including:

  • short story appetizers

  • poetry a la mode (haiku, tanka, free verse, etc.)

  • non-fiction hors d'oeuvres (essays, reviews, how-tos, short memoirs, travel journals, etc.)

  • photography morsels

  • digital art cocktails

Please submit your work for consideration! The only thematic requirement is that your piece must:

  • take place in an East Asian country; or

  • deal with an East Asian culture, past or present; or

  • (even peripherally) touch upon any aspect of East Asia, be it pop culture, history,
