Coffee Grinder logo with caption: The Grinder, brewing your submissions into something useful

Think seaside retreats, warm sand and cool breezes. Stories that are captivating, easy to read and let your reader take an escape from reality.

Bring us short stories filled with lovable characters who find the perfect love or a wild and crazy fling, jilted brides, old summer cottages filled with secrets, ghosts, lost diaries and treasure filled attics.

Send us stories filled with romance, mystery or adventure. Comedies with depth and emotion that go far beyond humor and romance. We’re looking for: happy endings, wonderful locations and a fun ride. We want stories with the perfect summer vibe.
