Our 50th issue is a big deal--and that's not just hype. CNF #50 spans two seasons (Fall and Winter!) and is nearly double the length of a normal issue of Creative Nonfiction.
To celebrate almost 20 years of literary publishing, we've created the ultimate reading experience. This issue serves as an in-depth primer and a kickass introduction for anyone new to the magazine (or the genre), while providing longtime readers with new insight and never-before-told stories about the origins of Creative Nonfiction--and a peek into the future--from founding editor Lee Gutkind.
PLUS: We're bringing out some of our greatest hits. The issue features ten remarkable true stories from our first 50 issues, with new introductions from CNF editors past and present.
It's Creative Nonfiction gold!
