About

Established in 2017, CRAFT is a literary magazine for fiction. We explore how fiction works, reading short stories and flash fiction with a focus on the elements of craft, on the art of fiction. We feature previously unpublished short fiction weekly, with occasional reprints, as well as weekly critical pieces including essays on narrative craft, interviews, book annotations and reviews, and more. Each published work of fiction includes an author’s note that discusses craft and stylistics in the story.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
