Don’t let the location fool you: “founded in a condo in Austin, Texas” – not all great literary ventures are begun in bars. The powerhouse editorial/web design team behind Line4, Karyna McGlynn and Adam Theriault, have created a four-line approach to the epigram – accepting submissions of 3-15 4-line poems on a theme, preferably non-rhyming poems and with no individual titles.
The first issue of Line4 includes contributions from Emily Kendal Frey, Emily Mahan, Amanda Chiado, Nate Slawson, Andrew Lundwall, Josh Burge, Dan Nowak, and Jeffery Evans.
With submission criteria that includes a penchant for “funny, the juvenile, and the exclamatory! New Sincerity = A+. Also anything where high-brow and low-brow make sweet, sweet nudity. Political, pop-cultural & poetic commentary appreciated. Landscape page orientation is pretty nifty too.” – I don’t know how Line4 won’t soon be overrun with submissions – and appreciative readers!
