Call for Essays: Special Nonfiction Issue of Literature and Belief
January 15, 2015 § 4 Comments
From Brevity author Joey Franklin:
Here at BYU we host an eclectic literary and scholarly journal titled Literature and Belief that examines a broad spectrum of moral-religious issues in literature. The journal is in it’s 27th volume and publishes a wide range of genres—poetry, personal essay, literary criticism, interviews, and book reviews—and has published many well-respected authors including Ted Hughes, Wayne Booth, Peter Hawkins, and William Stafford, to name a few.
Recently the editors at Literature and Belief asked me to edit a special nonfiction issue–and so I’m putting the word out to the CNF community in hopes of putting together a great issue.
The journal’s title is the only hard and fast editorial guideline—we’re looking for the best possible creative nonfiction (personal essays, lyric essays, literary journalism, travel narratives, nature essays, memoir, etc) that explores issues of belief in some way.
