Not sure what creative nonfiction is?

That’s okay—it’s a fancy term that writerly folks use to describe a genre encompassing the memoir, the personal essay, narrative journalism (think Hunter S. Thompson and Truman Capote), and even some prose poetry. But you can think of creative nonfiction as true, personal storytelling, which is why we do what we do: We champion telling true stories without shame. By that we mean that people who find the courage to share their truth are unashamed of whatever that story is, and they become stronger by the telling and the sharing of it.
