THEME: BRIGHT

Coffee People Zine celebrates the creativity of the coffee community. We showcase the multi-dimensionality of folx who work in and around the coffee industry. Through our seasonal submission-based zine, we publish art and articles, poetry and photography, music and musings, doodles and drawings, and other creative works by baristas, roasters, and other coffee professionals around the world.

Rules for Submission:
1. If you work in the coffee industry, your submission can be anything.
2. If you do not work in the coffee industry, your submission must be about coffee in some way.

Open Submissions:
We are currently accepting submissions for Issue 16, our Spring 2022 release. The theme is "BRIGHT" and you can take that however you want to. Brightness and acidity are core components of a coffee's flavor. We're also releasing this issue on the Spring Equinox, where the days start getting longer and the world can seem a bit brighter. Maybe your work plays with light/shadow, or is centered on intelligence/brightness of mind. Whatever you think of "BRIGHT," we want to see it!

*BIPOC/LGBTQ+/people with disabilities/folx with marginalized identities are highly encouraged to submit work.*

Submissions Due: Feb 7, 2022 (early submissions will be given primary consideration)
Release Date: March 20, 2022
