Paulette Licitra, the editor of Alimentum, the Nashville-based journal of food and literature, recently announced that the current issue will be the last print edition. As an ex-employee of a printing paper distributor, I could totally see that one coming. But fear not, Alimentum will still be a repository of great writing on food-related topics for the foreseeable future, just on their website at

If you're interested in submitting works of food-related fiction, nonfiction or poetry for the first digital edition, they are accepting manuscripts until March 15. For submission guidelines, visit their website. In a hat tip to the old school, Alimentum accepts submissions only via snail mail, so don't dawdle.

Paulette also said she has spaces left in a few of the enjoyable cooking classes she teaches in her home through her Cucina Paradisio program. If you're interested in any of the classes below, check out Paulette's Facebook page for more info and to sign up.
