SUNDAY REVIEW / FREE TIME TO WRITE SHORT FICTION.
Now that we’re all experiencing free time while being quarantine, perhaps it’s time for the great American short story to emerge from our souls. The following companies offer short fiction contests and other interesting options to nurture the writer inside all of us.
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 We feature previously unpublished short fiction weekly, with occasional reprints, as well as weekly critical pieces including essays on narrative craft, interviews, book annotations and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. Click here.
