“Congratulations! The Best of Creative Nonfiction, Volume 3”Posted: December 8, 2008
That was the subject of an email I got December 3.
“In July 2009, W. W. Norton will publish the first edition of The Best Creative Nonfiction, Volume 3, edited by Lee Gutkind. This collection will showcase new voices, ideas, forms, and approaches in creative nonfiction and will be published simultaneously as a trade paperback and an issue of the groundbreaking journal Creative Nonfiction.
“We’d very much like to include your blog entry titled “An Open Letter,” which was nominated by Sarah Einstein…”
I am honored, humbled, ecstatic. I’ve read and studied Lee Gutkind for years and subscribed to the journal, considering it the Bible of creative nonfiction. It is THE journal of the genre. And Lee Gutkind is the Godfather of the genre. And to have my work published there is the ultimate. I am honored, humbled, ecstatic.
Thank you, Sarah!
And thanks to my husband, always my biggest supporter, who literally laid down his life for this and goes with me once again into a publishing experience.
So … subscribe to the journal!
