Creative Nonfiction Forum :: Fourth Genre

Fourth Genre: Explorations in Nonfiction (published biannually by the Michigan State University Press) includes a forum on their website of articles from past issues: “We like to think of Fourth Genre as a learning community, a place where writers and readers can meet and engage in conversations, ask questions, experiment, test boundaries, offer advice, and share insights into literary nonfiction. The following excerpts, drawn from past issues, capture something of the range and complexity of that conversation.”

Currently, the Forum on Nonfiction includes:

Interview with Scott Russell Sanders
Roundtable Discussion: Literal versus Invented Truth in Memoir
Bret Lott, “Toward a Definition of Creative Nonfiction”
Lee Gutkind, “Why I Chose the Creative Nonfiction Way of Life”
Nancy McCabe, “The One That Got Away: On Memory and Forgetting”
Michael Steinberg, “Finding the Inner Story in Memoirs and Personal Essays”
Interview with Richard Rodriguez
Capsule Book Review by David Cooper
