Advertise with CNF
First published in 1993, Creative Nonfiction was the first magazine devoted exclusively to publishing high quality nonfiction prose. Today, CNF is an essential resource for anyone with an artistic, professional or critical stake in the genre—or for anyone who simply enjoys true stories, well told.
Advertising with CNF is an excellent way to reach a highly targeted audience of nonfiction readers and writers nationwide and abroad. Affordable advertising options are available both in the quarterly print magazine and our monthly e-newsletter.
Each issue of Creative Nonfiction reaches over 4,000 subscribers across 26 countries, with an estimated print run of 9,000 copies. Ad spaces can be reserved individually or in a discounted package. Please note that all art is published in black and white and must be submitted as high res images (minimum 300dpi).
