TRACK//FOUR is seeking submissions from writers and artists of color. We accept work from people of color only, as this is a safe space and a place to showcase underrepresented and often repressed voices in the literary and artistic world-- and elsewhere. Although in the future we strive to provide our lovely contributors a monetary sum for their work, we are currently unable to pay contributors. However, as of 2017, we will be nominating written work for Best New Poets, Best of the Net, and the Pushcart Prize.
Needless to say, please refrain from sending us anything racist, homophobic, sexist, ableist, classist, etc. It will be sternly declined, and we will be unhappy.
All submissions should be in 12-point Times New Roman or Garamond. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please indicate as such. If your work has been accepted elsewhere, send us an email over Submittable to withdraw your submission, naming the piece(s) that you would like to withdraw. Work is accepted and encouraged in languages other than English as long as a translation is provided. We do not accept previous published work.
Poetry: Send up to five poems. Poems should not share pages and should be single-spaced. Poems of of all forms and subject matter are welcome.
Prose: Send 1-2 pieces up to 3000 words each, double spaced.
Art: Send up to five pieces as a .png, .jpeg, or .gif file.
If you have had work accepted by our journal, please wait six months after its publication before submitting again.
We look forward to reading your work!
