For an upcoming issue, we're seeking true stories that incorporate or
involve food.

Essays must be vivid and dramatic; they should combine a strong and
compelling narrative with a significant element of research or
information, and reach for some universal or deeper meaning in
personal experiences. We're looking for well-written prose, rich with
detail and a distinctive voice.

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

Guidelines: Essays must be: unpublished, 5,000 words or less,
postmarked by September 3, 2010, and clearly marked "Food" 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); multiple entries are welcome ($20/essay) as
are entries from outside the U.S. (though subscription shipping costs
do apply). Please send manuscript, accompanied by a cover letter with
complete contact information (address, phone, and email), SASE and
payment to:
