Nominate a Blog Post!!

Creative Nonfiction is seeking narrative blog posts to reprint in The Best Creative Nonfiction, Volume 3, edited by Lee Gutkind, forthcoming in August 2009 from W. W. Norton.

We’re looking for: Vibrant new voices with interesting, true stories to tell. Narrative, narrative, narrative. Posts that can stand alone, 2000 words max, from 2008. Something from your own blog, from a friend’s blog, from a stranger’s blog.

The small print: We will contact individual bloggers before publication; we pay a flat $50 fee for one-time reprint rights. Deadline: October 31, 2008.

It seems that the editors see blog posts as simply an online version of a personal essay. But my favorite posts by my favorite bloggers would make no sense in a print anthology. But what makes those posts really great is all the cool online stuff: links, embedded videos, etc. This could be a good place to start a discussion of how the form of the blog post differs from the form of a personal narrative.

Anyways, we should be against the Lehman Tendency. The best of the best of the best, that's just silly.
