About Carve Magazine: Carve Magazine is honest fiction. We publish online the kind of stories that linger long after they are read—stories that are honest, that are willing to reveal the flaws and the beauty hidden in each of us.

Publisher's Description: Carve is honest fiction. We publish short stories online and in print on a quarterly schedule. "The Stories" are available for free online, but the Premium Print Edition lets you: get closer with each author in "What We Talk About" interviews; hear from other readers like you in "Reader's Voice" essays; and learn more about the stories that didn't make the cut in the controversial "Reject!" feature. Each Print Edition also features "Fast Facts" which detail each story's journey from first draft to publication.
Carve's stories are entertaining and profound, with tales that are woven masterfully and feature compelling characters and honest truths about the struggles and triumphs we all endure and experience. We honor the legacy of our namesake, Raymond Carver, by publishing stories that don't revel in the exotic but rather dig deep into our shared experiences and humanity.
Carve is also home to the annual Raymond Carver Short Story Contest, which offers more than $2500 in prizes for fiction and offers winners the chance to be read by literary agencies. For an experience that truly immerses you in the the world of the short story and celebrates the written word, read Carve.
The spring 2013 issue features the three winners of our 2013 Esoteric Awards (natural disaster theme): "Storm in a Teacup" by Dan Powell, "The Possibility of Fire" by Jessica Barksdale, and "Higher Ground" by Karen Celestan. In-depth interviews with all three are also included. Reader's Voice essay by Owen Vince, a new Reject! story by Molly Laich, and Something More features the two honorable mentions of the contest: Victoria Large's "Before the Earth Shook" and Jeff Moscaritolo's "A Chance to Get Involved."
Winter 2012 - Our second Premium Print Edition features four new short stories centered around the classroom and teenage experience. Interviews include Eric Freeze, Man Martin, Katie Cortese, and Gary V. Powell. Includes a special feature on writers and writing with disabilities, a new Reject! story, and a new Reader’s Voice essay.
