Fun new market...

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

They say:

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.

I like it too. Loquacious is such a great word - I have a friend who uses it a lot and it makes me laugh!

Oh brilliant, just the sort of thing I've been waiting for! I'd love someone to put a beer down on top of my flash story.

Hi all get subbing, and you too can be read while being eaten off. What a fantasy... (calm down woman, you are far too old n ugly for those thoughts).

Hi Iseult - Thanks so much! I still cant quite believe I get another lovely week there all for nothing. Blissful.
