Call for Submissions: “When Doctors and Lawyers Connect—and Collide.”
For a collection to be published by Southern Methodist University Press, Creative Nonfiction is seeking new essays written by or about doctors and lawyers, exploring the two professions’ similarities as well as their divisions and points of conflict. What intrigues, interests, or annoys doctors and lawyers—and, potentially, others—about each other? The objective of this project is to capture the complex relationship between these two professions. Essays must be vivid and dramatic; they should combine a strong and compelling narrative with a significant element of research or information. We’re looking for well-written prose, rich with detail and a distinctive voice. Creative Nonfiction editors will award $2,500 for best essay.
Guidelines: Essays must be: unpublished, 5,000 words or less, postmarked by March 15, 2009, and clearly marked “Doctors and Lawyers” on both the essay and the outside of the envelope.
There is a $20 reading fee; $25 includes a 4-issue CNF subscription. Multiple entries are welcome ($20/essay) as are entries from outside the U.S. (though additional subscription postage costs do apply; email firstname.lastname@example.org for rates).
Please send manuscript, accompanied by a cover letter with complete contact information, SASE and payment to: Creative Nonfiction, Attn: Doctors and Lawyers, 5501 Walnut Street, Suite 202, Pittsburgh, PA 15232. Please email any questions to email@example.com.
