Top Definition
1. no adjectives, no adverbs. no beauty of language. no nabokov. no updike. marginal shit. often about homosexual relationships.
2. a clique of marginal writers who don't believe in adjectives nor adverbs. Usually shepherded by a relatively well-known author whose outsized ego has plucked them to be passable to teach intro workshops but without enough talent to ever eclipse him.
3.work published in thick-papered journals with cryptic names.

This story told from the perspective of a lesbian angel who now works as a cook at a camp in wyoming for kids with skin diseases and also has an epistolary correspondence with her puerto rican roomates mother, whom she is advising on suicide, strikes me as very stegner fellowesque.
