Pushing the BoundariesPosted: June 2, 2011
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS to Creative Nonfiction Writers!
Timothy Papciak, Assistant Editor of Creative Nonfiction, emailed me a few days ago and asked me to help spread the word about their current Call: Pushing the Boundaries, with a deadline of June 13.
So here’s the word!
Creative Nonfiction [the journal of the genre] is seeking experimental nonfiction for its “Pushing the Boundaries” section. CNF wants writing that blows their minds with its ingenuity, essays that not only push the boundaries of the genre, but tear down the borders. They want work like they’ve never seen before!
But remember…the stories must be true. Because TRUE STORIES WELL TOLD is what creative nonfiction is all about.
If Nashville area writers want to learn more about creative nonfiction, I teach 4 classes each month at the Franklin Rec Center. The next session begins Wednesday, June 8, at 10:00 AM. Also, I will be leading a 2-session workshop July 14 and 21 at The Good Cup in Franklin. Please let me know if you are interested!
Meanwhile, the deadline for your ambitious stories for CNF is June 13. To submit, send your stories to: Creative Nonfiction, Attn: Pushing the Boundaries, 5501 Walnut Street Suite 202, Pittsburgh, PA 15232. Include a word count on the first page of the essay, as well as your contact information and an SASE or email address for response.
Create, push the boundaries, tear down the walls, polish, and send!
