Publisher’s description: River Teeth is a biannual creative nonfiction journal co-edited by Joe Mackall and Dan Lehman with the assistance of students in the low-residency MFA program at Ashland University.
Founded in 1999, River Teeth combines the best of creative nonfiction, including narrative reportage, essays, and memoirs, as well as critical essays that examine the genre and that explore the impact of nonfiction narrative on the lives of its writers, subjects, and readers. Two pieces from Volume 13 Number 2 have been selected for reprint in Best American Essays 2013.
River Teeth is looking for good writing. That’s all. We publish the best-of-the-best, which includes names you’d recognize in a second as well as writers who are making their first appearance in print. If it’s good writing, it’s good for us. Please don’t send us poetry or fiction - there are plenty of good journals publishing these genres, so why waste your time sending to a place that doesn’t?
River Teeth is published by Ashland University.
