A truly phenomenal (if we do say so ourselves) Issue 6 is here, featuring short stories by Dylan Nice and Chris Boucher, along with some pretty amazing artwork by Michael Tarbi. Buy it now to peruse the drafts, stories, and interviews or come find us at the bookfair at AWP.
David Ulin, the LA Times book critic, profiled draft as a publication that highlights writing as a process of discovery, focusing in particular on our all-poetry Issue 5. Read the article here.
The good people over at New Pages just posted a review of our second issue. Choicest quotable from said review reads as follows:
…draft invites you to think of a creative work as the product of a process. Many writers are stymied by the challenge of doing everything “right” the first time. This journal does a great public service, reminding us all that it’s okay to “make mistakes,” so long as you’re putting words on the page.
Thanks, New Pages (and reviewer Kenneth Nichols) for all the good work you do in the lit community! We appreciate you.
“…the questions the editors ask are exactly the kind readers-writers would want to know…”
“Write, Read, Revise: A Journal of Process.” by Lita Kurth
“draft: the journal of process… is a dream discovery for teachers of creative writing at the secondary, undergraduate, and graduate levels.”
