The Nearby Café, online since 1995, is a quiet, relaxing cyberplace where you can engage with diverse projects and ideas in the visual arts, literature and writing, politics, food and travel, love and lust, health and wellness. These staples of animated conversation in café society around the world also constitute a cross-section of the central issues of 21st-century culture.
We aim to provide the ambiance of a classic international café with an internet spin. Please drop in anytime, pull up a chair, and settle down in any of our sections — or feel free to table-hop. Make yourself comfortable here. You'll find work by a number of writers and visual artists, including myself, Don Riemer, Dr. Long Yu Qian, Linda Troeller, Colleen Thornton, Earl Coleman, David Steinberg, Barbara Nitke, Slava Skrabal, and Nina Sederholm.

We're open 24/7, 365 days a year (and Leap Year too). Visit us whenever the mood strikes you, and check in often to see what's new — Blackboard Specials, at the top of the left-hand menu, has our latest additions. Remember: Wherever you find yourself in cyberspace, we're nearby.
