CNF in the Classroom

Whether you’re teaching the genre for the first or the twentieth time, Creative Nonfiction and In Fact Books make great additions to your classroom!

Educator discounts are available for Creative Nonfiction issues and subscriptions, as well as for In Fact Books titles.

Creative Nonfiction and In Fact Books titles are full of diverse, thought-provoking, and well-crafted essays that will interest your students and promote critical thinking. Take your literature, creative writing, and communications students beyond the five-paragraph essay and into more thoughtful, complex modes of writing that encourage them to build on their writing abilities in new ways.

Contact us to learn more about how we can contribute to your syllabus. 


We proudly offer $15 print subscriptions to students (US residents only) when you adopt Creative Nonfiction for your class. Students will receive at least two issues over the course of the semester—and as thanks for your support, we’ll send you, the instructor, a complimentary one-year subscription once five students have signed up. PLUS, you can arrange for a CNF editor to Skype or do a Google Hangout with your class!

Click here and we’ll send you a discount code that you can pass along to your students to use when they subscribe. First issues often ship within one business day.
