Alimentum: Literary Magazine About Food

As we head into the great season of eating, I thought I'd feature a lit mag dedicated to gustatory delights and frights, Alimentum. They publish food-related fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry. Right now they are hosting a poetry contest.

Deadline: December 1, 2009
Prize: $500 and publication
Entry Fee: $15 (Includes one year subscription)
Submissions: Via Snailmail Only
P.O. Box 210028
Nashville, TN 37221

Here are some menupoems they have online.

I could wax poetic about food, no problem. Now where is that verse I wrote about bread?

This actually made me laugh out loud when I first read lit mag about food. But actually it is a really good idea. I recently interview this foodie, John T. Edge, who has several books about food/culture, and it made me think how important food is to humans. Well, I know how important it is to me, especially anything greasy with a lot of calories. :) That John T. Edge's website is if anyone is interested.

THanks, Margo. I love reading food writing. I'll check it out.
