21/06/2016 · How to Write a Personal Essay
It’s worth mentioning that there is a $25 fee to SUBMIT to Creative Nonfiction. I know it’s a reputable magazine and many writers would love to be included in their fine collection of personal essays, but I find this fee offensive. There are many of us writers willing to write and submit for free for the exposure alone but to have to PAY to even be considered? Shame on them.
A good personal essay can move and inspire readers
Creative nonfiction and personal essay are powerhouses in the story-telling genre. They’re the volcanic marriage of real life and literary technique, and a chance to deliver our stories with sass, color and voice. By using a variety of techniques such as dialogue, scene, detail and narrative, creative non-fiction and personal essay breathe new life into the ordinary telling of our tales.
To add to the list: Creative Nonfiction! We’re always reading and often are looking for personal essays on specific themes. We’re just about to announce some new calls for submissions.
