Call for nonfiction on food: Creative Nonfiction

(News courtesy of R.S. White)

postmark deadline September 3, 2010

For an upcoming issue, we're seeking true stories that incorporate or
involve food.

Essays must be vivid and dramatic; they should combine a strong and
compelling narrative with a significant element of research or
information, and reach for some universal or deeper meaning in
personal experiences. We're looking for well-written prose, rich with
detail and a distinctive voice.

Creative Nonfiction editors will award $1000 for Best Essay and $500
for runner-up.

Guidelines: Essays must be: unpublished, 5,000 words or less,
postmarked by September 3, 2010, and clearly marked "Food" on both the
essay and the outside of the envelope.

There is a $20 reading fee (or send a reading fee of $25 to include a
4-issue CNF subscription); multiple entries are welcome ($20/essay) as
are entries from outside the U.S. (though subscription shipping costs
do apply). Please send manuscript, accompanied by a cover letter with
complete contact information (address, phone, and email), SASE and
payment to:
