Thank you for your comment. Despite the submission guidelines, it appears that HA does occasionally publish nonfiction. In particular, the “Feature” (as distinct from the fiction section) in their Spring 2020 issue, was “My First Blood” by Rebecca Cadenhead, which was awarded a nonfiction Pushcart Prize. https://www.theharvardadvocate.com/issue/spring-2020
Thanks! Love your list. I refer to it constantly.
