You’ve still got about ten days to submit to the “Big Love, Small Towns” issue of The Four Quarters Magazine. I’m a sucker for non-traditional,far-from-cliché poems about love, so I’m excited! The deadline is July 10th, so if you’ve got any nonfiction, fiction, poetry, art, or translations that might fit into this theme, follow the submission guidelines in the link below.
This journal, like most, uses a tiered review process for submissions. If you pass on to peer review, you’ll get a notification, and after that, you have a chance to be sent to the August judge, Jugal Mody. He’s an editor with the woman’s zine The Ladies Finger if you’re into submitting to feminist-friendly markets (I am).
The Four Quarters Magazine has a pretty extensive submission guidelines page, so do us both a favor and read over it carefully before you send work. This is standard, of course, but they are so clear about submissions that don’t meet specifications being immediately tossed away that I don’t want to lead anyone astray accidentally by misinterpreting the guidelines in this post. Of note, though, is that they do not accept simultaneous submissions. That said, since this issue is launching in August, the turnaround on submissions will be probably be quite quick. Keep this in mind when sending work.
