Publisher's Description: Read Carve and enjoy stories that are truly honest fiction. Published quarterly, our stories are available online for free, and we offer a Premium Edition subscription in print and on digital devices. The Premium Edition has exclusive features not available on our website: author interviews, Facts Facts, Reject stories, poefictiontry, and more.
We were established in 2000 and named in honor of Raymond Carver, and our stories reflect the essence of his writing: compelling characters, nimble words, and moments of grace that define us. Our fiction will keep you captivated from first line to last, and we invite you to share your thoughts and reactions with our comment feature available on every story.
Carve is also home to the annual Raymond Carver Short Story Contest, which offers more than $2500 in prizes and attracts the best fiction from all over the world. Our winners are also read by literary agencies as part of the prize package. Our stories have earned special mentions by Pushcart Prize and the Million Writers Awards, and many of our past contributors have gone on to publish novels, short story collections, or even start their own literary magazine.
We’re a passionate community of writers and readers at Carve, and we invite you to join us.
