What is veritas?
veritas is a literary magazine published by coffice.com. Features include poetry, short stories, non-fiction, and visual works. Veritas was first published in August of 2002, but was redesigned in May of 2003 to allow for submissions by all visitors to the site, and a broader audience. We also changed the look of the site, and the focus of the publication.

Justification for Existence - Why is veritas?
When did poets stop being pop culture icons? At veritas, we are worried about the intellectual state of our world, and wish to contribute to - rather than detract from - it. We publish what we believe to be quality work, and hope that our readers see it as such. We have seen sites such as one38.org (One Thousand Ridiculous Tragedies) go without updates for months, and hope that we can provide an outlet that is both moderated for quality, and updated frequently enough to be appreciated.

What is coffice.com?
coffice.com has been in use since 1999 for the publication of various works, and is currently host to veritas, and a few select projects.

How do I submit my work to veritas?

The site is nearly ready for public consumption, and the original texts that we wanted to keep were moved over to issues one and two. Aurora submitted two poems, which are included in issue three. Aurora also suggested a comments system, which will be added soon.
