Four Way Review

Four Way Review is a biannual electronic literary journal from non-profit, independent literary publisher Four Way Books. We publish poetry and fiction from both established and emerging authors through our open submissions process.


Please note:  Four Way Books editors do not offer editorial comments on submissions. We consider ourselves to be readers only until we actually sign a contract with an author. At that point, we develop an editorial relationship with the author. 

Thank you for your interest in  Four Way Books.
