CREATIVE NONFICTION ANIMALS CONTEST

19 November 2009

DEADLINE EXTENSION — APRIL 2, 2010

For an upcoming issue, Creative Nonfiction is seeking new essays about the bonds–emotional, ethical, biological, physical, or otherwise–between humans and animals. We’re looking for stories that illustrate ways animals (wild and/or domestic) affect, enrich, or otherwise have an impact on our daily lives.

Creative Nonfiction editors will award one $1000 prize for Best Essay and one $500 prize for runner-up.

Essays must be: unpublished, 5,000 words or less, postmarked by April 2, 2010, and clearly marked “Animals” on both the essay and the outside of the envelope. There is a $20 reading fee (or send a reading fee of $25 to include a 4-issue CNF subscription).
