Jessica Kay founded Coffee House Writers in May 2017 when she could not find a motivating and empowering writing community. You can read more about our founder here.

In January 2022, ownership of Coffee House Writers transferred to Lisa and Ian Mildon in hopes of providing a place where writers and poets can choose their content within the Fiction, Nonfiction, and Poetry genres instead of being assigned topics. Our platform is not only an opportunity for writers and poets to share their original works, but where they can build a reader base and a network of professional writers and editors.

Our goal is to maintain a supportive community where remote writers and editors can improve their craft while learning valuable skills in the online publishing industry.

CHW’s professional platform publishes articles weekly—our writers and poets may choose a weekly or bi-weekly submission schedule.

Coffee House Writers has two professional publishing platforms, works of fiction & nonfiction and works of poetry.

Our Fiction and Nonfiction department allows writers the freedom to tell stories in their chosen genre and topic while receiving substantive, developmental, line, and proofreading feedback from our experienced editors.

Our Poetry department is an involved and interactive part of the CHW team, where poets can learn, refine, and gain knowledge of the intricacies of this unique form of creativity.

As a virtual community, communication is a crucial part of Coffee House Writers. We hold meetings as necessary to keep staff abreast of current events and changes within the company and welcome sharing of knowledge within the team for the betterment of the community.

Originally registered in New Jersey as an LLC, as of January 1, 2022, we are registered and licensed as an online publishing business (LLC) in North Carolina.
