The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

CRAFT Literary



Description
Our focus is on the craft of writing and how those elements make a good story great. We are interested in strong fiction that shines because of its exploration of craft. We feature new and republished fiction; critical pieces on craft; craft exercises; interviews on craft with established writers; book reviews and summaries; and much more.
