We are pleased to receive submissions for the Lexi Rudnitsky First Book Prize in Poetry until October 31, 2017. Click here for information and to submit a manuscript! The winner receives publication, $1,000, and the option of an expenses-paid, six-week residency at the Civitella Ranieri Foundation in Umbria, Italy.

We thrilled about the release of our poetry editor Gabriel Fried's wonderful second collection, The Children Are Reading, available now from Four Way Books.

" multilayered as the finest fables, stories that are simultaneously about innocence, illusion and its loss, and the power of storytelling itself." – Publishers Weekly
