Yes, we want you to join us! Please click the Join link to join our Coffee Club. You’ll become a member of the Fictional Café and be able to submit your fiction, poetry and photos of your creative work. We jury contributions from members and publish new work each month and also consider them for our annual anthology. You’ll get a “Fresh Java” email each time we post a new work [but you’ll never get spam]. Your membership automatically enters you in our giveaways and contests, too.

What makes this virtual coffee shop so special is the diversity of our members. Whether it is writing, fine art, audio arts or web video, we have something that speaks to everyone. So come on in, grab a cuppa, and share your creativity with us.
