Editorial Focus: 

Fourth Genre is devoted to publishing notable, innovative work in literary (creative) nonfiction. We think of the genre as flexible, fluid, and expansive, and so we’re looking for essays–lyrical, familiar, personal, nature, environmental, travel, cultural, and especially graphic—that knock our socks off.

Tips From the Editor: 

Please write for sample back issues so that you can become familiar with the journal. We accept only previously unpublished work. At this time, we accept electronic submissions only from writers based outside the U.S.
