Our Background

 

In 1993, four writers—Jane Brox, Helen Fremont, Dzvinia Orlowsky, and Martha Rhodes—laid the groundwork for a small publishing enterprise that would become a highly respected literary press. Four Way Books published its first list of three poetry books in 1995, and currently publish fourteen to fifteen aesthetically diverse titles annually of poetry and short fiction. In the twenty plus years of operation, Four Way Books has not veered from its mission. We are comprised of five primary programs: a literary press, a sponsored residency, Pay a Book Forward, a prize program, and an electronic literary journal, Four Way Review.
