I got this in my e-mail yesterday from Creative Nonfiction. They’re seeking narrative nonfiction posted on blogs. (Subliminal ad: Vote for me. Vote for me.):
Subject: Help us find the best blogs!!
CNF is seeking narrative blog posts to reprint in The Best Creative Nonfiction, Volume 3, edited by Lee Gutkind, forthcoming in August 2009 from W. W. Norton.
We’re looking for: Vibrant new voices with interesting, true stories to tell. Narrative, narrative, narrative. Posts that can stand alone, 2000 words max, from 2008. Something from your own blog, from a friend’s blog, from a stranger’s blog.
The small print: We will contact individual bloggers before publication; we pay a flat $50 fee for one-time reprint rights. Deadline:, 2008.
Thanks for your help!
PS–if we choose a blog you nominate, we’ll send you one of our nifty “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up!” mugs as a special thank-you!
