Thanks for six great years!

August 4, 2014

After several months of not being able to return our attention to maintaing the journal, the editorial team has decided it’s time to officially call it quits. We’ve loved the six years we spent working with you, our wonderful poets and readers. As of today, however, we are closed for submissions with no plans to publish any new issues. Four and Twenty may resurrect in a new form, but not in the immediate future. We have greatly appreciated all of your support and the many years of great poetry we got to share with you. Although it saddens us to call it quits, we are happy to be leaving behind a legacy of six years of great poetry. And you, our featured poets and avid readers, deserve the credit for all you’ve done to help us leave that legacy behind. Thanks for six great years! May we meet up again on future poetic endeavors.

Our staff has been busy with new jobs, new moves, and other major life changes. To accommodate everyone’s need to adapt, we’re taking a short break from publishing the journal.  We’re going to use this time to plot a course for the journal moving forward. Look for an announcement in the coming months.  Until then, thank you for being such great fans of our labor of love.
