draft: the journal of process, is a new educational literary journal which features stories, drafts, and interviews about the writing process. Our mission is to emphasize the importance and diversity of the creative process, especially for new writers and students in writing classrooms.
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.
draft would like to reach as many writers, MFA programs, college and university English departments, writing institutes, writing conferences, retreats, and workshops as possible. We hope our detailed examination of the important and mysterious work that goes into story making will help to illuminate your own process.
