Together, the editorial teams of Fourth Genre, Hippocampus Magazine, River Teeth, and Under the Gum Tree announce the line-up for what’s become a much-awaited annual offsite event at the AWP — our affectionate shorthand for the annual conference sponsored by the Association for Writers and Writing Programs.

This 2024 AWP Conference & Book Fair takes place in Kansas City, Missouri. If you’re attending, we invite you to join us for A Creative Nonfiction Celebration with Fourth Genre, Hippocampus Magazine, River Teeth, and Under the Gum Tree!

The Details

The Readers

Each creative nonfiction journal will feature two readers, each a past contributor to that respective magazine. (And, in a few cases, some of these writers have appeared in a few of these sponsoring mags!)

  • Fourth Genre: Andrew Westoll & Kristine Ervin
  • Hippocampus Magazine: Penny Guisinger & Susan Rukeyser
  • River Teeth: Tierney Oberhammer & Brooke Champagne
  • Under the Gum Tree: Sue William Silverman & Molly Housh Gordon

So, if you’re headed to the Show-Me State this February, we hope we’ll see you there! Say hi to our interviews editor, Lara Lillibridge, who will be at the event introducing our readers!

(Interested in how events like these come together? A few months back, Hippocampus Magazine ran an interview with Janna Marlies Maron of Under the Gum Tree, the founder of this AWP offsite event!)
