In the spirit of Raymond Carver, CARVE Magazine is the home for what we call “honest” fiction. I love being a part of these gorgeous pages of literary goodness! In the Summer 2017 issue, I chat with the lovely Jacqueline Guidry about her quietly powerful story, “A Girl Called Penny.”
You can buy the Premium edition of CARVE for just $12 at this link.
From the site: Discover our signature HONEST FICTION and more. Each quarterly issue features nearly a dozen new, emerging, and established writers in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction.
Our stories have earned notable recognition from the Pushcart Prize and twice won 1st in the Million Writers Award.
Unique features you won’t find in other literary magazines include Decline/Accept, Story Statshot, and One to Watch.
PLUS: The Raymond Carver Short Story Contest is open each year from April 1 – May 15 and offers $2500 in prizes. Our guest judges have included the likes of Aimee Bender, Ben Fountain, Christopher Castellani, and Andre Dubus III.
Many past winners cite the contest as a launching point for their writing career, going on to secure agents, publishing contracts, or starting their own lit mag.
