We are four former Creative Nonfiction employees building a community of writers and readers who believe in the power of true stories to share ideas and experiences, foster empathy, and help make sense of what can happen in a life.
Every Wednesday morning, we deliver one flash essay directly to your inbox.
Short Reads is a free service that features flash nonfiction—nuanced work in just a few words. Early contributors include Jaswinder Bolina, Brian Broome, Beth Ann Fennelly, Beth Kephart, Patrick Madden, Deesha Philyaw, and others.
First issue launches Wednesday, March 29, 2023.PS/ We're not open for submissions just yet, but stay tuned.
