About Us

Currently, I am an editor for a renowned global online literary magazine that reviews submissions from high school students in over 70 different countries and in all 50 U.S. states.


I created my own digital magazine in order to provide an avenue of creativity for authors and artists of ALL ages, nationalities, backgrounds and levels of experience, including those who have felt marginalized or underrepresented. I want to support the writing community by shining a spotlight on new artists who will unleash their imagination and cultivate innovative and emotionally-intelligent storytelling. Here at Cool Beans Lit, we enjoy writing and art that is stimulating to the senses. We welcome any mix of genres, cultures and media from creators all around the world. 


Bring us your stories and your visual art! We want you to be seen and heard. Our editorial focus is smart yet unpretentious, relevant and exciting. We are currently an online literary publication but are working towards producing a print format for distribution.
