Twist-3 Generalized Parton Distributions may provide an alternative source of information on quark orbital angular momentum. Additionally, twist-3 GPDs embody information on the spatial distribution of quark-gluon correlations and thus provide information about the transverse position dependence of forces that act on the active quark in a DIS experiment. We discuss both the connection between twist-3 GPDs and transverse forces as well as general features of twist-3 GPDs.
