Message from the CNF editor: Creative nonfiction is a genre near and dear to my heart. I am interested in submissions that honestly and artfully explore subjects directly and tangentially important to LDS women. I particularly enjoy reading work that tackles new ideas and unspoken challenges, as well as fresh approaches to familiar topics. I find that the most successful essays tap into universal truths and the shared human experience by focusing on individual ruminations and experiences without waxing didactic, moralistic, or heavy handed. I especially encourage experimentation in form and heightened attention to language.
