Crafty

Craft are open to submissions of flash fiction and short stories, for which they pay a decent rate.

They're also running a competition, with a big cash prize - and a fairly hefty reading fee. I shall probably skip that one.

Whenever I think of 'craft' it conjurs up an image of some kind of needlework, though of course there are many other types of craft and meanings of the term. What does the word craft mean to you?

The craft of writing is what comes to mind.

Carolb said...

To me it means skill or skills in particular areas of work.

Writers are (hopefully) craftspeople of words.

Writing craft is skin to any other type of craft.

Many thanks Patsy. I've subbed 2 stories. Time will tell what happens.

Patsy said...

I don't think of it as a craft ... but don't ask me what term I'd use instead!

Patsy said...

Yes, I suppose we are.

Patsy said...

There are similarities, I agree. I think it's because our materials are words, rather than something more tangible that it seems different to me.

Good luck if you try them.

Good luck, Alan. Do let me know if you have any luck.
