Publisher’s Description: Creative Nonfiction is the voice of the genre. Every issue is packed with new, long-form essays that blend style with substance; writing that pushes the traditional boundaries of the genre; notes on craft; conversations with writers and editors; insights and commentary from CNF editor Lee Gutkind; and more. Occasional themed issues demonstrate the editors' belief that true stories, well told, can make any topic compelling and relevant. Simply put, CNF strives to demonstrate the depth and versatility of the genre it helped define.

Recent issues have included interviews with or essays by Lauren Slater, Phillip Lopate, Susan Cheever, Dave Eggers, Richard Rodriguez, Ruth Reichl, John T. Edge and David Shields.
