Editorial Focus

The Fourth River is the literary journal of Chatham University’s MFA Program, printed annually. We welcome submissions of creative writing that explore the relationship between humans and their environments, both natural and built, urban, rural or wild. We are looking for writing that is richly situated at the confluence of place, space and identity--or that reflects upon or makes use of landscape and place in new ways.

Tips From the Editor

Our theme is capacious, but our criteria is largely based on quality. If you're unsure whether a piece fits our theme, send it and let us decide. And, of course, feel free to purchase a back issue to familiarize yourself with our aesthetic.
