Weave Magazine is an American literary magazine based in Pittsburgh.[1] It was established in order to remedy a perceived gender imbalance in contemporary literary publishing. Weave publishes literary fiction, poetry, nonfiction, reviews, and artwork biannually in January and July.

History[edit]

Weave was established by Laura E. Davis and Margaret Bashaar in May 2008. It ensures that at least half of the work in each issue is created by women.[2] Weave's vision of diversity has since expanded to feature work by LGBT writers, writers of color, writers of age, and disabled writers, among other marginalized voices.[3] Davis is still the editor-in-chief.[1]

Awards[edit]

The magazine, or pieces that appeared in it, has received the following awards:

  • 2013 Verse Daily "Push" by Kate Partridge[4] and "Tantrum" by Suzanne Marie Hopcroft.[5]
  • 2012 Micro Award Finalist Anthony Varallo's story, "All Very Surprising," which appeared in Weave Issue 07.[6]
  • 2008 Seed Award from The Sprout Fund.[7]
