Editorial Focus: 

A resource for the discussion and demonstration of the writer's craft, Grist: The Journal for Writers seeks high quality submissions from both emerging and established writers. We publish craft essays and interviews as well as fiction, nonfiction, and poetry—and we want to see the best work you have to offer, regardless of form, style, or subject matter. We prefer writing that is accessible, and experimental work that shows an awareness of what is being subverted and why. We value fiction and poetry that is aware of the history that has come before it.

Tips From the Editor: 

Please follow the submissions guidelines on our website.
