Creative Non-fiction-final draft due December 8

This year brought unexpected change to every corner of the globe. From the reach of the pandemic, to the voices rising up demanding social and environmental justice, 2020 will no doubt be the subject of countless future history books. But this month, dear writers, we want to hear about your year: a personal story that grounds 2020 in real life.

Use the tools of creative nonfiction to weave together scenes and reflection, braiding together storytelling and meaning.
