Matthew Limpede and Kristin vanNamen – Carve Magazine
Late Night Conversation, hosted by Paul Martone
This week Paul talks to Matthew Limpede and Kristin S. vanNamen, editors of Carve Magazine. Carve seeks to publish outstanding literary fiction and to promote the writers they publish. Topics of discussion in this week’s episode include the 15th Anniversary of the Raymond Carver Short Story Award Contest, Paul’s “beef” with Aimee Bender (this year’s contest judge), Carve’s Premium Edition, and Carve in the Classroom. In his closing monologue, Paul speaks with our very own Amber Keller, host of Late Night Debut, about her unique history with Carve.
We’re short story fanatics, and we love short stories so much, and we sort of treat short story authors like people treat novel authors.
