Publishing the Best in Literary Nonfiction Since 1999
Here at Fourth Genre, we’re devoted to publishing notable, innovative work in nonfiction. We curate works across the full spectrum of the genre. Given nonfiction’s flexibility and expansiveness, we welcome a variety of works ranging from personal essays and memoirs to literary journalism and personal criticism. We showcase works that are lyrical, self-interrogative, meditative, and reflective, as well as expository, analytical, exploratory, or whimsical. Our journal fosters a writer-to-reader conversation, one that explores the markers and boundaries of literary/creative nonfiction.
