Four Way Books

About Us

Four Way Books seeks to please and expand poetry’s audience and to nurture the gifts of adult writers, spanning a wide range of geographic, cultural, and economic backgrounds. Our hope is to support our authors not only during the time we are publishing them but also throughout their writing careers by inviting them to participate in events, offering residency opportunities when possible, and making it known that our door is open to them. In addition to publishing excellent literary works, we provide our authors with the encouragement and support necessary for the longevity and success of careers in the arts. Well into its third decade, Four Way Books acquires and lovingly produces important, surprising, and potent works for readers, who consistently tell us they are glad we are here—eclectically, steadily, and passionately here.
