The Loquatious Placemat
This will either fly or flop, but I like it. An original idea, putting short pieces of fiction on paper placemats in coffee bars, cafes etc. Well, it's one way to keep the customers satisfied for a while!
They are calling for short flash pieces, poems, or manifestos. Full details on the blog HERE
Loquacious Placemat is gearing up to come in to the world! Our inaugural issue will be available exclusively online as a .pdf file. Future issues will be available in print as free two-sided placemat at various eateries in Eastern PA. We are going to have a fairly broad regional footprint; showing up in coffeehouses, diners and bistros from Stroudsburg to New Hope with loads of support in our native Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton area.
So what is Loquacious Placemat? It's a free double-sided black and white broadsheet style literary magazine featuring flash fiction and poetry ideally suited for a quick read over lunch, coffee or cocktails.
