Earlier this year, I accepted a new position as the Production Editor of fairly well-known literary magazine. It was an amazing opportunity and it has worked out better than I could have hoped. I get to work with some amazing people, read some wonderful stories, and help produce a fantastic literary magazine.
So, in the interest of shameless self-promotion, go read the stories in Carve magazine. All of them.
Okay, not really all of them. But all of the stories published from 2007 to the present are available to read online for free, so go make the most of it! Read ’em all until you’re cross-eyed. Or, read two or three. And subscribe to the print-based premium edition (which is what I help to create) because it has even more awesome features, including author interviews, in addition to the stories.
