EXPLORING THE BOUNDARIES

Creative Nonfiction is currently seeking experimental nonfiction for the "Exploring the Boundaries" section ("experimental," "boundaries" ... yes, we know these can be loaded terms). We're looking for writing that is ambitious, pushes against the conventional boundaries of the genre, plays with style and form, and makes its own rules. As always, we have only one absolute rule--nonfiction must be based in fact. 

Please note that this is NOT a call for an entire "Exploring the Boundaries" issue of the magazine; accepted pieces will be published one per issue, and earliest possible publication will be in Issue #72 (Fall 2019).

4,500 word maximum; please include a word count on the first page of the essay, and a cover letter with complete contact information and a brief bio. Any additional questions can be directed to information [at] creativenonfiction.org.

Submissions must be uploaded by 11:59 pm on Monday, May 13, 2019.
