We are seeking essays that use personal experience as a way of addressing the world, blending a confident and articulate narrator with fascinating subject matter. Again, we value exact and artful use of language and syntax as well as a compelling emotional experience that includes the reader, whatever the subject matter. The best essay is timeless, released from daily headlines but important for its truthful evocation of the world. Creative Nonfiction should be a maximum of 25 double-spaced, single-sided pages in 12-point font, no extra spaces between paragraphs and all pages numbered—or about 7,000 words.
THE THEME FOR THE 2018 ISSUE IS WILD AND TAME.
