A diversity of life thrives in the littoral zone—a thin strip of coastline between high and low watermarks. As the operating metaphor for our online journal, it refers to that part of Key West routinely overrun by the tide of literature, and to the rich life of letters in this island city. Littoral is our year-round online voice. Here you’ll find coverage of past events, news about upcoming opportunities, rare images from historic collections, updates from our Audio Archives, interviews, essays, and all manner of dispatch from the literary heart of Key West.
