Publisher's description: Cleave is a Janus verb, meaning both to stick tight and to fall away. A cleaver is the most broad-edged and brutally efficient kitchen knife, designed to be swung like a hammer for the most effective channel of force.
Cleaver Magazine shares cutting-edge art and literary work from a mix of established and emerging voices. Cleaver publishes poetry, short stories, essays, dramatic monologues, flash prose (600 words or less), and visual art. Cleaver presents a mix of national and international writers, creating a blend of content that is both accessible to readers who have never heard of flash fiction and fresh to those accustomed to reading cutting-edge literature.
