What is harder to describe than what we're looking for in creative nonfiction? Almost nothing.
Let's start with some general stuff: No more than 80,000 words or 150 pages. You know, manuscript length.
After that, well, it's easier to describe what we're NOT looking for: memoir, family history, self-help, theology, philosophy, recipes, how-to...
What does that leave? What does that mean? Who am I? What is my purpose in life?
I suppose that's all open to interpretation, but we're looking for strong, creative personal writing or essays, and again, just like our call for poetry manuscripts, we're really looking to publish a diverse range of voices and experiences.
If you're not sure whether or not your work fits this call, and you want to find out before you plunk down ten buck for the submission fee, you can email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a brief synopsis.
Please allow 3-6 months for response.
