Interested in interviewing for CRAFT? For a look at the type of content we publish, please visit our Craft Section.
We do not consider previously published material (reprints) in this category. All work in this section is concerned with fiction or creative nonfiction. We are interested in conversations with fiction and creative nonfiction writers/novelists focusing on the craft of writing. You may submit completed interviews or query/pitch here. We pay $50 for most standard interviews and $100 for hybrid interviews (a critical essay paired with a Q&A).
For essays on writing craft, critical essays, and book annotations, please choose this submission form.
We no longer allow multiple submissions—please send only one piece per genre at a time. If your craft/critical or interviews submission is declined, you may submit again to the genre immediately. You may have one piece of fiction (either short or flash), one piece of creative nonfiction (flash or creative essay), and one craft/critical piece or interview under consideration at one time.
We welcome queries and completed interviews of fiction or creative nonfiction writers. We will want to know if the interview is already approved as well as which elements of craft will be explored. Typically our interviews run around 2,000 to 2,500 words and our hybrid interviews run 3,000 to 4,000 words, 1,000 to 1,500 of which are a critical essay about one or more of the interviewee's books.
