Beyond Category Online
In 1997, Seneca Review made room for a cross-fertilization of poetry and nonfiction it called "the lyric essay." With this special issue of SR, we are making room for a different chimera we’re calling Beyond Category — work that crosses larger lines of genre and form. Not just between poetry and essays but between writing and visual art, between analog and digital. These hybrids, outliers, and anachronisms will be a regular part of future issues of SR, occurring simultaneously in print and online (depending on which format is fitting).
This issue is also the beginning of Beyond Category online, an archive for digital work that we will add to with subsequent issues.
