Come to Breakfast for Dinner #5: TOTEMEAL (Baggage) on Thursday, January 29th!

Happy brunch time to you, our dear sweet ‘n’ lows,

As you can tell from our uncharacteristically active internet presence, we are dang busy over here at Oatmeal Headquarters, so busy we almost forgot to add water to our overnight oats. But we remembered at last, waking up in the middle of the night in a frantic terror, with the truant thought practically running off our tongues–Breakfast for Dinner!


Yep! Our monthly reading series is back in full swing, and we’re kicking off the first B4D of 2015 with the theme of our upcoming issue: Totemeal (Baggage). This could mean anything: old writing, embarrassing writing, bucket lists, emotional outpourings. Bringing writing around the theme would be nice, but you could also bring anything and we will be endlessly grateful. We’ll have mac ‘n’ cheese, chocolate, and other comfort foods for you.

The reading begins promptly at 8 pm, eating to follow. There will be a little donation jar if you want to help out with the overhead costs. But no one will be turned away, so feel free to bring your friends and lovers! And those poems you have been secretly writing about them these past few years.

And so, without further ado, we invite you to:

Thursday, January 29 7:30 pm  – reading begins at 8 pm

Over & Out,

Currently Digesting Submissions!

Well, things are all abuzz here at Oatmeal Headquarters. The submission deadline just passed for the first issue, entitled RAW OATS: ORIGINS! (But no worries, we’re still actively looking for your flash fiction, poetry, recipes, anecdotes and doodles. Send them our way at!) Yes, it seems that Independence Day has brought us an abundance of literary mishmash for us to sink our teeth into.

In the next couple of weeks we plan to go into hibernation, in order to read through and organize the next few monthly issues. We’ll still be replying to e-mails, updating the Facebook and tweeting on Twitter, so if you need some friendly oatmeal advice then look no further! In the meantime, sit back, eat some gourmet popcorn, and wait for the release of
