Creative Nonfiction

Perhaps the only independent literary journal to publish creative nonfiction/literary journal, exclusively. Library Journal says" "Great essays by talented Writers." As the editor Lee Gutkind defines it, The essays published in each issue of "Creative Nonfiction" are models of the truest forms of creative nonfiction, in that they simultaneously "showcase" or "frame" fact in a creative context.

Dominion Review

Dominion Review is a national literary magazine published each spring by Old Dominion University. As Katherine Soniat might say: The task is always greater than conceived, and so it was as we set sail to perform a discovery--in and out of islands, coves, with a wind so blustery we named one the Isle of Limbo, last howling stop before Hell.
