Nonfiction Open Fee-based

I’m looking for CNF essays that are heart-wrenching and/or hilarious but that, at the same time, are a treat to read because of their brilliant language. The best CNF rides the wave of fiction plot lines on a raft of poetic language straight into the reader’s heart and mind because, ultimately, it’s all true.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
