    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.

  2. 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.

  4. Hope says:

    How many authors do you generally accept per genre?

  5. Hope says:

    I was wondering when will authors be notified of the status of their work in Four ties Lit Review?

  6. Ok, we’re a week late. But all notifications have been sent and we are for the most part posted. Just About the Authors and About the Editors Pages to get to.

  7. your method of notification sucks

    • Sorry John, thanks for the feedback. Let us know how we could do better.

      • We emailed John the incorrect response letter with his notification, which I’m sure cause more than a little confused. I have privately contacted John and I know why and how the error happened and am making changes to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Always learn from your mistakes.

    I have never submitted to your publication, but I respect your forthright attempt to keep those who submit in the loop. I also appreciate your willingness to admit a mistake.

    Hi there, my name is Eric Merriweather. I submitted some poetry of mine, on 5/18/2018 and Submittable still shows the submission as still being, “in progress”. I was just wondering if this is normal. I figured it could not hurt to reach out and make an inquiry. In any case, thank you in advance, for your response.
