LCP 2021 Summer Micro-Fiction Contest!

What do you see in the image below? What story does it bring to mind?

Write us a 250-word or less micro-fiction story based on the image below (keeping in mind that you're submitting for our summer issue), and we'll chose our favorite to publish in this July's issue of Loud Coffee Press!

Submissions do not have to include coffee or music theming (but can!). Send your submission to with "Summer Contest" in the subject line by midnight EST June 15th, 2021.

The contest is open to US and international residents, and the winner will receive publication and a byline in volume 2, issue 3 of Loud Coffee Press, as well as some swag from our online shop! We will choose a few runners-up to be featured in our weekly blog. Entrants should be age 18 or older. There is no fee to enter.

Oooh, I wrote a micro-story from this prompt, but realize I have an outstanding submission of a poem (it's just 1 poem)--does that mean I can't sub the micro-story then, too? Thanks!
