Fresh-Cut Lit & More


Cleaver Magazine publishes work by writers and artists at all stages of their careers.

We are especially committed to celebrating work by emerging writers and artists alongside established practitioners. We define “emerging” as young artists (under 30) or those of any age who are still in the early stages of their careers.

Our Emerging Artists range from teenage poets to new writers who have established careers in other disciplines. Cleaver‘s Emerging Artists have been listed among The Best American Essays, Best Small Fictions, Best Microfiction, and selected for republication by plain china, a national literary anthology that showcases the best undergraduate writing from across the country.
