About the Magazine

Creative Nonfiction was the first and is still the largest literary magazine to publish, exclusively and on a regular basis, high quality nonfiction prose. The magazine has consistently featured prominent authors from the United States and around the world and has helped launch the careers of some of the genre's most exciting emerging writers, as well as helping establish the creative nonfiction genre as a worthy academic pursuit.

Creative Nonfiction has a circulation of 7,000 and serves the whole spectrum of readers, from nonfiction and journalism enthusiasts to poetry and fiction writers, editors and agents.

Creative Nonfiction has always generated energy, intellectual substance and debate within the genre, in part by publishing timely, often controversial theme issues. Recent partnerships with book publishers, notably W. W. Norton and Southern Methodist University Press, have led to special issues published simultaneously as booksan arrangement that not only offers great value to subscribers but also helps work stay in print for longer and have wider distribution.

Creative Nonfiction is printed in Pittsburgh, PA, by Broudy Printing Inc., and is distributed in the U.S. by Ingram Periodicals Inc., Media Solutions, One Source, and Ubiquity Distributors Inc., and in Australia by Speedimpex Australia.
