Empower and enlighten the next generation of writers.
With a vast collection of back issues and online short stories, Carve is a great tool for introducing your students to quality literature and contemporary authors.
Educators can order any of our back issues in bulk (min. 25) to introduce your English and Creative Writing students to a living, breathing literary magazine that features HONEST FICTION, interviews with writers, new poetry, nonfiction, illustrations, and more.
Separately, we also offer 9 free comprehensive lesson plans, each centered around a Carve short story. All include audio recordings of the story, interactive activities and discussion prompts, and critical reading and writing exercises.
