Mission Statement

We like short things, small things – the pocket-sized pieces of art that contour the canons of literature rather than simply adhering to them.

If you ask yourself what is a “story,” and then you ask your mailman what is a “story,” you probably won’t find the same answer.  That ambiguity is what feeds this journal.

We believe that there is more to a literary discussion than word count.  More to the discussion than genre and medium.

We are Demitasse Journal.

We’d like to take a look into the art of brevity.  To extend, rather than redefine, the meaning of story.

And yes, that is a huge, bold statement.
