I’m proud to announce that The Fourth River, Chatham’s literary journal, now has an online component! Our inaugural piece is a story by Tina May Hall that is part of an ongoing project, a growing cluster of stories linked by GPS coordinates. I was in love with the project the minute I heard about it, and it fits so perfectly with our theme of place-based writing.
I’m excited about the other stories (and poems, and essays) we have lined up. But for now, you can also read an interview with Brad Kessler, who visited and read at Chatham earlier this year.
Between the two, contributors to the first online issue of The Fourth River have won the Drue Heinz Literature Prize, the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, and have publications in The New Yorker, The Kenyon Review, and Black Warrior Review.
