22 Sept 2014 | Submissions Deadline: Creative Nonfiction Magazine Contest

Note: This contest does have an entry fee. However, the prizes may be considered worthwhile enough for the contest to be given your consideration. 

Creative Nonfiction is seeking submissions for its latest contest, dealing with the theme of “WAITING“.  The magazine is  a part of the Creative Nonfiction Foundation that seeks to promote the genre of literary nonfiction through education and publication.

The contest deadline is September 22, 2014.  The prizes: 1st place, $1000; 2nd place, $500. The contest’s theme is open to interpretation, but the expectation is that essays will focus on “stories of delays, postponements, and pauses that explore and examine our relationship with time.”

Submissions must be fewer that 4,000 words, and can be sent online or by post. There is a reading fee of $20 per submission; for an additional $5, entrants can receive a 4-issue subscription (US only).

International submissions are welcomed.

  1. Ugh! I’ve known about this one for months and yet I keep dragging my feet on submitting…I AM the ultimate “waiter” when it comes to my entry for “Waiting.” Why? What weird, deep seated psychological venom has me paralyzed with procrastination?
