Lyric essay, creative nonfiction, memoir. We want your prose about reality as you experience it. We want to be blown away by your language, but that won't be enough if you don't have anything to say. Pop cultural, political, workaday, we want work that expands our definition of what non-fiction is and can be.

  • No formal length requirements, but we're unlikely to publish anything above 5,000 words that doesn't earn every word of its length.
  • If you are submitting flash CNF (under 1,000 words), you may submit up to 3 pieces at once, each with their own title, in a single document.
