Since our inception we’ve had people ask if we accept nonfiction—after all, sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. However, at the risk of jamming too much into a single issue, we’ve sidestepped this genre…until now, that is. That’s right: Issue 11 (Fall 2013) will be devoted entirely to…CREATIVE NONFICTION!
While we love fiction and poetry, we’re so excited to see your nonfiction essays—we feel it’s another fantastic way to gain some perspective on the region. Also like fiction and poetry, we’re looking for pieces that embody the Midwest—good, bad or ugly—pieces that represent the people or places here, your own experiences, things you’ve seen or witnessed—all in the name of helping to catalog the region in a way never done before.
So, whether you’ve lived here your whole life, driven through on a family road trip as a child, or transplanted—we want to see your Midwestern-inspired Creative Nonfiction.
