CNF 3rd Readers' Choice Theme Issue

Published October 11, 2016 Posted by
creative nonfictionContinuing an annual tradition started three years ago, Creative Nonfiction presented a list of topics to its newsletter subscribers and social media followers and had them vote for the ones they liked best. "Mistakes" was the first issue (#53), followed the next year by "Waiting" (#56), and now, for 2016, "Childhood" (#60), with the subtitle: "It's not all fun and games." Each Readers' Choice issue also includes a Best Essay contest. Readers can access on the CNF website the winning essay, “The Walk Home" by Judith Barrington, and an interview with Barrington; "Before We're Writers, We're Readers" by Randon Billings Noble - 15 nonfiction authors on the true (or mostly true) stories they read as kids; Lee Gutkind's introduction; and two additional pieces: "I Survived the Blizzard of '79" by Beth Ann Fennelly and "Writing Motherhood" by Marcelle Soviero.
