We believe that the provision of a forum for aspiring authors and support in finding readership is an important part of the literature magazine and it has been a pleasure to work with many good authors early in their career. Typically, an edition of CNF contains at least one article by a previously unreleased author.

While our writers have a tendency to engage with stories around stories, we are always glad when we are attracted by the work that is breaking outside this general form. We are particularly interested in writing that combines elegance with subtlety and goes beyond the individual to tell us something new about the game.

It is our firm belief that good writing can make any topic interesting for a general public. We kindly ask you to thoroughly study the tenders. All entries will be answered as soon as possible. When you send us your manuscripts by post, you will be sent an e-mail (usually within one weeks of receiving your manuscripts at our office) to confirm that we have inbounded them.

When submitting on-line, you will be sent a Submittable verification e-mail. As your paper is based on research and/or reporting (and to a certain extend, ideally), you will be asked by the editor of the CRF to provide documents on your source and help verify the facts. While we do not ask for quotations to be sent in with etchings, you may find it useful to keep a footnote and/or bibliographical work.

It is our intention to read the contributions that have been submitted and we hope to be able to inform the submitter about the state of their work in early 2018.

As a rule, we have several entry platforms open at all times (see above Call for Papers), of which many authors have to contribute a flat-rate payment for the cost of their work.

Wherefore we calculate the cost of read. Each year we release between 70 and 100 authors and we are paying each one of them; the cost of books helps to compensate for these costs. We' re happy to give authors more if we can, so we often run contests (with prices of $1,000-$10,000 per work); literacy costs help us cover these costs.

Submitting your paper on-line is unbelievably comfortable for authors, but in some cases it can be too comfortable. This avoids the payment of the read costs. Up to 22 "Tiny Truths" are published in each edition.... and we charge these authors with a copy of the mag.

The purchase of a CNF membership will eliminate the costs of a reading-fees. A new directive has recently been adopted: no CNF member will ever have to accept a literacy charge of any kind. Subcribers can post as often and as many views as they wish, as long as their subscriptions are up to date.

Subscriptions can be purchased anytime, anywhere at the normal rate. What do you reimburse for a paper you publish? I left my paper over your verbiage. Are you always charging a flat rate for books? No, you can also hand in non-thematic articles without paying a reader's bill if you are sending a paper version by post.

As with many other journals, we are charging a $3 essay submission rate through Submittable. For contests, reading-related expenses and (in most cases) price monies usually compensate for the associated expenses; or you can become a CNF subscription for a small surcharge, which also contributes to keeping the light on at CNF.

Please be aware that if you reside abroad and deposit by post, cheques or payment instructions must be made out in US dollar to pay for them. While we are pleased to be able to read extracts from longer plays, our own personal experiences show that we seldom manage to draw 4,500 words from a longer play and call it an article.

When your blogs are publicised, we consider them to have been post. However, if you significantly modify or extend a post that we post on your blogs, we may consider it for all of our invitations to post. In some cases - for example, if you are a physician who writes about your work with a patient - this may sometimes be appropriate.

Are you going to give me your opinion on the paper I submit? Unfortunately, due to the high number of entries (close to over 100 articles per month), we are unable to provide in-depth feedbacks or follow-up. We recommend attending CNF's tutoring programme and on-line classes if you are interested in having a journalist proofread your work.

Is it possible to write an article that I have written in one of CNF's on-line classes or in the tutoring programme? In our opinion, when you ask this questions, they usually mean: "I am writing a section of a textbook I am writing, and I need the right to it. Is it possible to edit my article after I have submitted it on-line?

Any work you are submitting for review should be the definitive correction work. If you have filed the incorrect dossier, but you realize that your paper was a poetry or other apparent mistake, we allow the processing of the papers filed within a restricted number of criteria - usually within two week after the initial filing date or up to a competition time.

Once the article has been allocated to a particular editor, modifying a file can cause a great deal of disorientation and prevent us from paying full regard to your work. Whilst your article should be proof-read thoroughly, a small typing error will not affect the overall assessment of your article.
