Carve, named in honor of Raymond Carver, publishes fiction, poetry, and nonfiction that respects the power of language and craft and elicits genuine emotional truths. We also strive to foster a sense of camaraderie among all writers and readers.
We converse with the writers we publish, sharing discussions on the modern writer’s life with readers across digital and print mediums. We deliver thoughtful feedback on select submissions that we decline, and we highlight individuals and organizations who practice outstanding literary citizenship. We also engage younger readers through classroom-ready lesson plans centered on our short stories.
We value the power of good writing—to challenge, heal, educate, disturb, and transform. With our borderless, inclusive, and diverse community, we look forward to sharing in the empathic spaces that literature creates.
