Editorial Focus

Cool Beans Lit publishes stimulating fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry and visual art that all coalesce into stunning issues. Their editorial focus is challenging, thoughtful, experimental, and eclectic work from both new and established authors and artists. They are passionate about representing all types of voices and seek to offer a home to those who might be otherwise marginalized or underrepresented. As a nonprofit, they exist solely to promote the work of others and to boost the seratonin!

Tips From the Editor

Occasionally, we have themed issues, but please submit your best work no matter the fit. We review many fiction genres, types of nonfiction and forms of poetry (e.g., haiku, free and rhymed verse, sonnets and experimental). We enjoy writing that humbles us with its joy, humor, musings, hope, regret, a sudden epiphany or lessons learned. We aim to stoke our readers’ senses with your words.
