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. At this time we do not publish literary criticism or book reviews.
