Small CRAFT Warning

CRAFT Liteary JournalSelf-described as a “platform for emerging writers,” The Master’s Review is an online and print publication that offers a Fall Fiction Award (now open!) and publishes writers you may not have heard of yet—but will hear more from soon—in their New Voices section.

Now they’ve launched CRAFT, an “online literary journal which explores the art of fiction.”

CRAFT publishes new fiction every Friday. In between, they offer content that “considers and explores the elements of craft in fiction.”

Recent contributors include Elizabeth Gaffney and Michael Sheehan. Editorial musings on elements of craft include “dialogue” and “reflecting the interior.” CRAFT also announces new books each week and offers book reviews along with news round-ups from around the literary world.

Our focus is on the craft of writing and how those elements make a good story great. We are interested in fiction that shines because of its exploration of craft. On our website, we feature new and republished fiction; critical pieces on craft; exercises; craft book summaries; and much more.

They read submissions year ’round. Flash Fiction: 1,000 word max. Short Fiction: 7,000 words, max.
