Carve seeks to publish outstanding literature and to promote the writers we publish, helping both new, emerging, and established authors reach a wider literary audience. This is achieved through sharing their stories across a variety of publication mediums: online, print, e-readers, and more.
In addition, we take special pride in our editorial process. While we cannot send a unique response to every submission, we certainly try. We offer notes and critiques on stories that we feel are nearly aligned with our vision while noting that ultimately selections are subjective and varied.
The magazine is named in honor of Raymond Carver, short story artist and master of the “minimalist” form, though his later works espoused a longer, more detailed style. We admire this dyad, as we strive to publish fiction that is both concise and generous.
Above all, Carve, like its namesake, is honest fiction.
