The Constance Rooke Creative Nonfiction Prize is awarded to the best work submitted to the magazine’s annual contest for a genre that embraces, but is not limited to, the personal essay, memoir, narrative nonfiction, social commentary, travel writing, historical accounts, and biography, all enhanced by such elements as description, dramatic scenes, dialogue, and characterization.

New this year: Pay only $15 for each additional entry after the first.
The deadline for the 2014 Creative Nonfiction Prize is August 1, 2014 (postmark date).
The entry must be between 2,000 and 3,000 words. Only indicate title and word count on the first page (no names or addresses). Please double space your work.
No restrictions as to subject matter or approach apply. For example, the entry may be personal essay, memoir, cultural criticism, nature writing, or literary journalism. (Read our Creative Nonfiction mandate here; read the Creative Nonfiction Collective's definition of creative nonfiction here.)
