A wide range of voices will be welcomed. Our response time averages four weeks, though it might be longer in exceptional circumstances. Your work will be given every consideration.
Submissions are accepted in the following categories:
CTN publishes original literary fiction characterized by an interest in language, the development of distinctive settings, compelling conflict, and complex, unique characters. Submit one story or up to three short shorts (500-1,000 words each). Due to limited space, we do not consider longer stories and novellas. We reserve the right to reject any work of art.
CTN publishes high-quality articles dealing specifically with genre-related best practices and literary criticism. Articles dealing with the integration of novels and interpretative analysis will be given consideration, and issues with higher education, particularly in the area of counseling, pedagogy, and action research, will be considered as all articles are sent for peer review.
CTN publishes original poetry of the highest caliber: informal personal narratives, prose, and lyrical and formal poems. Poetry may be culturally rooted, but definitely aspirational, inspirational, intelligent, well-crafted, inventive, edgy, gutsy, and punchy poetry.
All submissions should be your original work. Submissions should be in 12 pt. Times New Roman, single-spaced 50 to 60 lines. Submit three to five poems in a single document. All rights revert to the author upon publication. For any questions, contact:

CTN publishes distinctive topical essays and personal creative nonfiction of any kind; this includes pieces that might fit into the memoir, travel, and historical nonfiction categories. We are not an academic journal and publish for a general readership. Above all, we are interested in publishing nonfiction that surprises and intrigues us. Submit one or three shorter essays (500-1,000 words each).
CTN will publish interviews with writers of all kinds. Please query us at CTN for a proposal for an individual interview.
REVIEWS AND REVIEW ESSAYS
CTN publishes reviews of current fiction, poetry, and nonfiction books, especially those from writers with an innovative approach to the subject matter. Several related works may be reviewed at length in a review essay that engages critical issues inappropriate to a single review. We are always in search of new reviewers. Please query us at Rw0oMjUpJisoIS4jIiY0JikjNyIjJiAoID4HJCYzJC8zLyIpIj8zaSg1IA@nospam. On the possibility of a particular review or review essay, specify your credentials for the review.
CTN welcomes English translations of all genres from other languages, in which case brief biographies of the authors and translators should be included. Translators must have permission from the authors before submitting.
CTN accepts visual art submissions, photography included, by invitation only.
