Issue 57 / Fall 2015
It’s not always about the money
Creative Nonfiction #57 explores making a living—that means jobs, yes, but more than that: how do we work meaning out of our days, and what do we do to survive? For the young office temp, the state executioner, the musician, the activist, the refugee worker, the rape crisis counselor, and the estate planning attorney whose stories are featured in this issue, it’s not just about the money.
Plus, writing (and editing) for free; revisiting Studs Terkel’s Working; the history of erotic memoir; tiny truths; and more.
