    Coffeetown Press, Seattle, will release my collection RUNNING AT NIGHT- Collected Poems 1976-2012 on April 1st. I was wondering if you or someome else at Four Ties would be interested in doing a review.
    If so, please provide a name and address and the publisher will send a review copy.

    Matt, I found the website very well organized and easy to access. I like being able to skip from the contents directly to the section I wanted to read. Thank you for recognizing Maya Angelou. She was an incredible woman and poet.
    I enjoyed the section on poetry. Art work was colorful.

    I recently submitted to this publication, and was wondering how long is after open submissions end that writers are notified if there work is accepted or not?

      Thanks for asking Hope. The open submission period closes tomorrow; we hope to have everything read in the next two weeks. After that, folks who have not make the cut will be notified first and fastest, followed by the accepted authors, and finally the few maybes we keep in reserve. I hope to have the new issue complete published online by August 1st.

    How many authors do you generally accept per genre?

      That depends on the genre, We have around 8x the number of poetry submissions compared to Non-Fiction. Our numbers should be roughly the same as last year, maybe up a bit.
