Critically-acclaimed author Ann Packer, takes us on profound journeys that give brilliant shape and substance to our emotions. We have a craft essay that inspires adventure, poetry that restores, fiction exploring aging, love and loss and non-fiction about the ties that bind—as well as the winners of Writers’ Challenge.

CNF’s first-ever readers' choice theme issue is dedicated to MISTAKES. We've collected an explosive group of essays exploring wrong turns and missteps—from a dramatic prison protest to an ill-advised game of strip-spin-the-bottle, from a bad tattoo to the epidemic of errors plaguing our healthcare system. Together, these true stories grapple with questions that get at the heart of how to live. Plus, why building a platform is a waste of a writer's time, why publishing won't make you happy, and why readers shouldn't worry (too much) about the occasional typo.
