Siblings and Joy and Other Publishing Opportunities
February 17, 2016 § Leave a comment
People sometimes think that Brevity and Creative Nonfiction magazine live under the same roof, but in fact we don’t. Not at all. We are just good friends. Ignore any other rumors you hear.
But we like what they do, and we like to share what they are doing next. Here is their latest call for submissions:
DEADLINE Mar 7
Siblings (a book)
What to send: True stories that capture the complexities and comforts of sibling relationships. We hope to represent the widest possible variety of these relationships—whether adoptive or biological, step or full, human or animal, one or many.
Joy (a special issue of CNF)
What’s on the line: $1,000 for best essay; $500 for runner-up; publication in CNF.
What we’re looking for: Well-crafted narratives that explore the brighter moments in life, those that teach and enlighten us through their beauty or humor. Send us your true stories of once-in-a-lifetime moments, finding pleasure in small things, or seeking out the joy in the midst of otherwise difficult circumstances.
What to be joyful about: No reading fee for current subscribers!
Pitch Us a Column
What we’re looking for: Have an idea for a literary timeline? An opinion on essential texts for readers and/or writers? An in-depth, working knowledge of a specific type of nonfiction? Pitch us your ideas. We’re always accepting query letters for the non-essay sections of the magazine. We’re especially interested in pitches related to upcoming themes: Childhood and Learning from Nature.
