We at Four Branches Press exist as an independent press dedicated to the return of poetry to a place of prominence in the lives of people, even those who are not poets. We recall a time when quality poetry found space in virtually all newspapers and magazines, and was read, talked about, cut out, tucked into wallets and pockets, sent to friends and loved ones. Poets were guests on popular talk shows. Poetry mattered to the majority, not just to the few. We believe poetry must again expand its horizons and allow the return of the more natural poem. It is our intent to offer one place to which they can.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
