Literary Spotlight: CRAFT

Why merely publish short fiction when you can also give writers a glimpse at how it was made?

CRAFTClick any story in the 2-year-old online literary journal CRAFT, and you’ll get much more than short fiction. Each story is tagged with one or two particular elements of craft – interiority, character development, dialogue, setting, allusion, and the like – so that readers interested in studying a specific example skillfully rendered know exactly where to look.


Each fiction writer who publishes on CRAFT’s website includes an author’s note offering biographical information as well as insights into what inspired the story and which elements of craft proved challenging and rewarding. The author’s note, editors explain, frequently moves readers to return to the story with a new understanding of how it came together before publication.
