Grist: The Journal for Writers
Grist is pleased to announce our new blog! We invite you to watch this space for a dynamic discussion of contemporary writing—thoughts on craft, publishing, and the life that both shapes and is shaped by the words we put on the page. We’ll feature a diverse range of contributors from all walks of the literary life. We hope this will be a place where you, our readers, will find a sense of community and an opportunity to participate in an ongoing conversation about the literature we love and love to make.

A New Kind of Literary Journal
Founded in 2007 by the graduate students in the Creative Writing Program at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Grist: The Journal for Writers seeks to present a new kind of literary journal. Grist is currently published once a year. Each issue features quality stories (fiction and non) and poems, as well as interviews with writers and essays devoted to discussions of craft. Each issue also includes a Special Genre section in which we feature a specific literary genre or craft focus. At this time we do not publish literary criticism or book reviews.
