We’re excited to announce our first non-fiction call for submissions. We are looking for high-quality, narrative non-fiction pieces across a spectrum of genres and styles, pulling from a diverse range of new and established writers alike. Send us pieces that resonate with rhythm and meaning, and have a strong narrative arc, not just factual accounts. We want to feel the intent and spend a few moments in your shoes.
According to Wikipedia:
Creative nonfiction (also known as literary nonfiction or narrative nonfiction or verfabula) is a genre of writing that uses literary styles and techniques to create factually accurate narratives. Creative nonfiction contrasts with other nonfiction, such as academic or technical writing or journalism, which is also rooted in accurate fact, but is not written to entertain based on prose style.
Memoirs, lyric essays and prose poems do fall into this category, however, please note we do not accept poetry!
