River Teeth: A Journal of Nonfiction Narrative

Vol. 5 (2003) through current issue

River Teeth is committed to exploring human experience in all its variety by combining the best of creative nonfiction, including narrative reportage, essay, and memoir, with critical essays that examine and illuminate this emerging genre. River Teeth is dedicated to the simple premise that good writing counts and that facts matter. The editors believe that the ability to muster the evocative detail, to probe the workings of minds, to gain access to scenes, and to name names is a necessary but never innocent enterprise in nonfiction. River Teeth is dedicated to the idea that the questions one asks about these true stories are the ones that help us understand their significance for our lives.
