Episode 5: Leonora Smith

Off the Page is back with a brand new episode featuring our very own Leonora Smith! Smith is a reader for Fourth Genre, who also recently appeared in the journal with her “Writer as Reader” piece, “Locate Mercy,” from issue 16.1. Her work has traversed both poetry and prose and, in our conversation, we discuss how her poetic leanings inform her interpretations of the creative nonfiction she reads from FG, as well as how she approaches each genre in her own writing.

Thank you for listening, and enjoy episode five!

In April 2013, the Fourth Genre editorial staff descended on a snow-ridden Boston for the annual conference of Associated Writers and Writing Programs (AWP). During the three-day trip, we were lucky enough to sit down and record conversations with several of the writers published in issue 14.2. We spoke mostly about the writers’ work, but also about larger issues in the world of nonfiction—plus a few exciting extras.

Our first episode features writer and poet Daisy Hernandez, known to FG readers as author of “Before Love, Memory”—a Notable Mention in Best American Essays 2013.

Special thanks to Doug Mains & The City Folk, who provided our intro and outro music. You can learn more about the band on their website.
