More about Weave:
*Call for Creative Nonfiction submissions: Weave magazine accepts works of creative nonfiction from both emerging and established writers who strike a careful balance between the truth as it happened and the truth as the author has come to see it through the writing process. In other words, to simply tell a story that is "true" is not enough. The best creative nonfiction will demonstrate a close and methodical exploration of a subject and streamline that exploration through a rich, scenic narrative. Childhood memories, ended relationships, the birth of a child, the funeral of a dog, a trip abroad--quite literally any life experience can be turned into narrative. But the challenge--and reward--of writing creative nonfiction is in the "figuring out" of what it means in terms both personal and universal. In terms of content, Weave is looking for strong voices from diverse cultural backgrounds; however, the quality of work is our top priority when considering submissions.
