Summer issue of CNF is now available.

Now available!

Creative Nonfiction #67 // Summer 2018
"Starting Over"
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.

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.
