So many opportunities!!

So many opportunities!!

Our good friends at Creative Nonfiction magazine and In Fact books have a few new calls out, and there may be a few you’ll want to answer.  Here are the details and deadlines from their e-mail call, and a link to the submission website:

We’re seeking submissions for two new anthologies from In Fact Books, a special issue of CNF, and the Exploring the Boundaries section of the magazine. 

Jan 20

Exploring the Boundaries (section of the magazine)

What to send: Ambitious writing that pushes against the conventional boundaries of the genre, plays with style and form, and makes its own rules.

Feb 9

Beyond Crazy (a book!)

What to send: Original stories that address–either directly or obliquely–the trials of living with mental illness.

 Mar 9

Becoming a Teacher (another book!)
What to send: Stories by and/or about elementary and secondary school teachers, recalling and reflecting on the most salient moments of their careers.

 Apr 13

The Weather (a special issue of CNF)

What’s on the line: $1,000 for best essay; $500 for runner-up; publication in CNF.

What to send: True stories–personal, historical, reported–about fog, drought, flooding, tornado-chasing, blizzards, hurricanes, hail the size of golfballs, or whatever’s happening where you are. We’re looking for well-crafted essays that will change the way we see the world around us.

More Information on all of these and more can be found here.


§ One Response to Creative Nonfiction Calls

  • For Beyond Crazy are the stories supposed to be serious or can they be satirical? They are non fiction just written with a sense of humor and some self degradation. Can more than one story be submitted? Can we TM our stories or do we have to give up the right to the story?
    Thank you
