Experiments in Nonfiction

Deadline January 11, 2021

What we're looking for
Creative Nonfiction is currently seeking fact-based writing that is ambitious, pushes against the conventional boundaries of the genre, borrows forms, plays with style and form, and makes its own rules.

Send us your prose poems, your hermit crabs, your word collages, your speculative nonfiction. Surprise us!

4,000 word maximum; please include a word count on the first page of the essay and a cover letter with complete contact information and a brief bio. Essays must be previously unpublished.

Submissions must be uploaded by 11:59 pm on Monday, January 11, 2021 (EST).

There is a $3 convenience fee for online submissions; subscribers to Creative Nonfiction and/or True Story never pay a reading/convenience fee of any kind when submitting.
