  HOW TO USE THE FOUR WAY BOOKS SUBMISSION MANAGER: The Four Way Books Levis Prize in Poetry January 1, 2023 - March 31, 2023. If you encounter issues at the deadline, we will help you, even if the submission manager has closed.
  • You create your own password, it is not assigned. If you already have a password, you may log in to check the status of your submission or submit additional manuscripts. (If you need to reset your password please click on the need help link in the login box and follow the instructions.) If you are creating a new account, you will be asked to create your own password. See step 2.
  • Fill in your contact info, the title of your manuscript, and an 8-20 character password of your choice in the form below.
  • Use the browse button to find the file on your computer that you would like to submit. Select the file and click on the open button. Your file will then appear in the “file” field. Please note: changes cannot be made to your manuscript once it has been uploaded, so please be sure to have read through the formatting instructions in their entirety prior to uploading. If you must make a change, email us and we will tell you how to proceed. You may email us at
  • All documents should be in Microsoft Word, PDF, or RTF format and in 12 point font. Be sure that YOUR NAME DOES NOT APPEAR anywhere on the manuscript. The title page should include ONLY the title. We make all efforts to ensure that manuscripts are read blind. If during screening we discover your name or other identifying information in the manuscript, we may contact you and request that you resubmit a corrected manuscript via this form.

  • Please fill in your credit card information.
  • When you have completed these steps, click submit.
  • Your submission is now complete. You will receive emails confirming your account creation, your submission reception, and your payment confirmation. You will be able to log in immediately to see that your manuscript was successfully transmitted using the username and password you created during the entry and payment process. Please keep this information in a safe place; you will need this information to access your manuscript’s status.
  • Multiple submissions are fine but must be submitted separately. Each submission requires a $30.00 entry fee. You may not withdraw your own manuscript, please contact the press if you need to withdraw your submission.

We will respond by Labor Day.

We respond to the winner individually. If you do not hear from us by Labor Day, please feel free to query as to the status of your submission as emails sometimes go unnoticed or into spam folders.
