issue zero: draft journal
"In draft, we’re interested in mechanics, techniques, approaches, triumphs, failures, concussive frustration--everything that goes into crafting a publishable piece of creative writing through revision. We ask authors to reveal their tricks behind the illusions. To tell us how it’s done, or try to."
issue zero - "the draft preview" - is now available, and 2 drafts are online as excerpts: “Saggitarius” by Greg Hrbek and “Once Upon a Time, Bananas” by Mary Miller
draft is edited by Mark Polanzak and Rachel Yoder. Mark Polanzak has published stories in Third Coast, The Southern Review, and The American Scholar, among others. He teaches writing at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Rachel Yoder has written for The New York Times, The Sun Magazine, Kenyon Review, and other publications. She teaches writing at the University of Iowa in Iowa City.
there also is a draft blog that features conversations, observations, and exercises related to drafting. "If you're a writer, teacher, or student, we hope you'll consider sending us your thoughts. We accept submissions for our blog via firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate "Submission" in the subject line."
