Creative Nonfiction, Fall 2013/Winter 2014 Issue
This is the fiftieth issue put out by CNF editor Lee Gutkind, and the essays and interview here speak more about the magazine and its struggles, about publishing and writing than about any external thing. It’s as if (and retrospection can be and is a good thing occasionally) the magazine, in hoping to see through the looking glass, sees only its own reflection.
If you’re a newbie to creative nonfiction writing, or still feel you aren’t competitive, Gutkind has some stories for you to peruse, more for structure and tone than content. All quite well written, of course.
Gutkind likes certain types of CNF, so if you’re hoping to be published there, read and evaluate closely.
