The Fourth River

The Fourth River Will Be at AWP ’18!

The Fourth River staff is busy gathering supplies and energy to make the trip down to sunny Tampa next week for AWP ’18! Here is some information about where we’ll be and what we’ll be up to.

Our home base will be booth #1119 in the bookfair, where we’ll have copies of brand new Issue 15, DISPLACEMENT,  super nice t-shirts in soft organic cotton and other fun swag. Plus chocolate, naturally. We’ll have information about The Fourth River, The Chatham University MFA Program, and the Words Without Walls outreach program, and friendly editors on hand to answer your questions and remind you about self-care during the conference. (Hello, beach.)

Some of us will be doing readings and panels, too, and we’d love to see you there! Follow us on social media with #FRAWP18.

S272. Editing in an Era of Climate Change: A Q&A with Four Environmental Editors . (Scott Gast, Sheila Squillante, Simmons Buntin, Debra Marquart, Jennifer Case) The past year has brought climate deniers into the White House just as atmospheric carbon dioxide levels reach a tipping point. Editors of four environmental journals—Flyway: Journal of Writing & Environment, The Fourth River, Orion, and A Journal of the Built + Natural Environments—will discuss how their journals have responded, how they balance activism with art, and what they look for in submissions now.
