Important stuff

We welcome subs from underrepresented writers. This includes (QT)BIPOC folks and writers based outside North America and the UK.
Two of our editors have a soft spot for lyric pieces. “More of a seismograph, less of a timeline. I like the fragmented, the segmented which unapologetically doesn’t seek to be whole,” as one of the assistant CNF editors paraphrases Sarah Fawn Montgomery.
We strongly prefer content that feels grounded and specific. Evoke a particular place, a particular time. Dig deep into what makes home “home,” the origin of names, etc.
There are a few things we DO NOT WANT: 1) your Covid stories (unless you have a particular, unique experience), 2) philosophical musings, 3) boozy expat travel stories, 4) second person breakup stories.
If you have a submission that does not fit in the traditional genres, you have our immediate attention. We’re open to various forms of multimedia work.
