Take Note, Essayists and Memoirists

Two announcements from the excellent literary journal, Creative Nonfiction, including the opportunity to take a class with the renowned Lee Gutkind, the man who popularized creative nonfiction:

We've been so busy these last couple of months here at CNF that we're now just getting around to doing our spring cleaning. And wow--now that we've taken a moment to look around the office, we see we're working in an avalanche zone--there are books and back issues stacked floor to ceiling. If we let this continue we'll never find our front door again!

So, instead of risking life and limb, we're hauling a ton of it out to our virtual front yard. For one week only (July 21-28), we will be offering up to 80% off back issues, books, subscriptions, merch, and more!

Stop by the CNF website http://www.creativenonfiction.org from July 21-28 to take advantage of these one-time savings.


Just Announced: Washington, DC, Workshop!

Want to spend the day with the "Godfather behind creative nonfiction?" If so, then Turning Trauma into Treasure is your chance. This just-announced, all day writing workshop with CNF's own Lee Gutkind will present the art and craft of memoir writing, explaining how to capture your own traumatic stories in a way that touches and impacts other people.

So mark your calendar:
