Carve is an online fiction magazine, which pays people to write fiction stories. Anyone can write a story and submit it to them, and if they accept it, they will pay out a 100 dollars. Read the rest of this article, and find out all about the online fiction magazine Carve.

Online fiction magazines

There has now been an explosion in writing websites which pay you. Writing online isn't all about writing for revenue share sites, content mills and blogs, as fiction provides another avenue, for online writers to earn from. And not just writing books, there are also many fiction magazines around, who will pay people to create great fiction stories for them. All these fiction magazines are different, and want different kinds of things, like different size stories and different genres, but they all pay.

Carve

Carve is one of these fiction magazines which pays for stories, and this site is slowly becoming one of the best online. It is run by a man named Matthew Limpede, who took over all operations of the site in 2007. Since then, Carve has expanded, and now offers a Premium Edition, which is also available in print. Carve describe the fiction on their site as honest, and claim they seek to publish out standing fiction. They say that as a writing service, they aim to help all kinds of authors. When you provide a story for them, their editors will give you feedback, sending back notes and critiques, which in turn will help you to improve your fiction. The website can also help more experienced writers, by helping them to find a wider audience, by publishing their writing, across a number of different publication mediums.

Details and summary of Carve

What kind of stories are Carve looking for? They state on their website that they are looking for honest fiction, which is written in the form of short stories. They want emotional and soulful stories, with great characters in them. Carve highly recommend that people read the some of their stories before submitting one of your own, so you can get to know exactly what they are looking for. Carve do not accept people to contribute multiple stories, so you can only send one story at a time. They do take from 4 - 6 months to get back in touch once you submit a story, but this is not long really, it is pretty average for online fiction magazines.

Although many people out their say that writing isn't all about money, I don't think half the people would do it online if they didn't get paid. Saying that, Carve is a site which pays for stories, and if you do manage to get a story published with them, they will pay you $100. Carve have no minimum word count, but don't want stories which are more than 10,000 words long. So if you think you can create great fiction, why not get paid for it, by submitting a story to Carve.

if you read the fine print on this one though, you have to pay them a $3 reading fee to them for them to read your submitted article first. This factor put me off the site altogether.

Thanks for highlighting our magazine, Micheal!

Just to clarify, we do not guarantee feedback unless you're using our separate Literary Services at carvelit.com, but we do sometimes provide feedback for stories submitted to the magazine, usually about 10-15% of declined submissions.

We do require a $3 fee to submit to the magazine online, but there is no fee to submit by mail. Thank you again, and happy writing!
