Summer issue of CNF is now available.
Creative Nonfiction #67 // Summer 2018
Hitting the reset button after war, loss, infidelity, and other natural and unnatural disasters.
This issue is dedicated to the proposition that we are all—always—works in progress. In nine new essays, writers come to terms with fate, test the limits of resilience, flirt with disaster, fall down, and get back up again … like it or not.
Plus, encouraging vulnerability in the creative writing classroom; Patricia Hampl explores the “essay mind”; coming to terms with chronic illness; tiny truths; and more.
All new subscriptions begin with CNF #67

Quotes from the Issue
We are all—always—works in progress.
- Lee Gutkind
Memory and perception come together, often, to make imagination. They do not make invention.
- Patricia Hampl
In my twenty years of teaching, I have heard so many stories. I have come to understand that this is part of my job: to listen and receive the stories.
