Information about your publication: The Four Quarters Magazine is a non profit publishing venture from India dedicated to the fostering of creative writing in English. Beginning December 2011, the Magazine shall be published every three months in a digital format for the time being. We are of course trying to explore the possibility of a more tangible medium of publication, but are generally averse to the idea of entire forests being destroyed for the purpose of providing paper for a more “intimate reading experience.” Enthusiasts from different professional backgrounds across several cities in India as well as from outside the country are part of this venture and the editorial board of the magazine. The Magazine also has an expanding peer review group comprising, even as of now, of writers and poets whose work has been widely acclaimed and well received all over the world. Please note that the people who work for the Magazine DO NOT receive any remunerations, or honorariums, for their time and labour. It is, as some would say, a labour of love a love that dares speak its name, a love of literature and the written word, a passionate polyamory of sorts. Also, the Magazine DOES NOT charge any subscription fees for members, or submitters. It is free, and shall so be, until we, the people behind the show, think it otherwise.
What type of submissions you are looking for: POETRY: A minimum of three short poems (14 lines) and a maximum of five are desired. For longer poems to be published, the opinion of our peer review group is considered. We may need to discuss such cases with the authors in question. PROSE FICTION: There is no upper word limit for submissions in this category. There is no lower word limit as such, but a minimum limit of 500 words is expected, but that depends on the author.?? PROSE NON-FICTION: There is no upper word limit for this category. There is a lower word limit in this case and that is 1000 words. EXPERIMENTAL: This is a rather broad classification as you would think. In spite of our best efforts at conformity, newer ways and methods of writing do emerge. We are very interested in such new work. In this case there is no upper/lower limit. However, an extensive peer review and editorial discretion will determine whether your work in this category will be considered for publication. There shall be no discussion with the authors in this case. This is part of our publication policy. We shall also consider submissions in the ARTWORK AND PHOTOGRAPHY category. Discussions with the artist will be the way we shall deal with this. However, one thing that must be kept in mind is that the work in question must not have been published or used in part or in whole anywhere on the Web or in any print or otherwise public edition.
