Brevity—A goal for emerging writers

Guest Post by Ruth W. Duncan

Dinty Moore, editor of Brevity:  a Journal of Concise Literary Nonfiction, likes to publish brief (up to 750 words) essays by “emerging authors.” He stresses attention to detail, the one-inch frame idea, sharp focus. Read some, they’re excellent.

Payment ($45) is given for featured essays and craft essays, but not for book reviews.  Rolling submissions (through the website only; $3 fee). 3 issues per year: Winter, May, Fall.

Ruth W. Duncan is working on the memoir Place Stories.
