New Nonfiction by Older Writers

Deadline February 22, 2021

What we're looking for 
Creative Nonfiction is currently seeking submissions of new nonfiction work by older (60+) writers. We’re looking for personal essays/memoir, experimental work, science writing, profiles, historical nonfiction, lyric essays … any kind of lively fact-based writing. Your work might directly address issues related to age/aging, but there is absolutely no requirement that it do so. 

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.

Submissions must be uploaded by 11:59 pm on Monday, February 22, 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. Ever. Not a subscriber yet? Choose the discounted subscription add-on when uploading your submission.
