Publisher's description: The Fourth River is a publication of the MFA in Creative Writing Programs at Chatham University. We welcome submissions of poetry, fiction and nonfiction that explore the relationship between humans and their environments—writings that are richly situated at the confluence of place, space and identity, or that reflect upon landscape as culture, and culture as landscape.
