Additional Information:

Four Ties Lit Review does not have sponsors or advertisers (yet), we will be unable to pay contributors.

When Four Ties Lit Review chooses a piece for publication we secure temporary Electronic Rights. Understand that these are considered worldwide rights as the internet is international. All rights revert back to the writer after publication.

However, we hope you will join with FTLR in its mission to improve the reputation of Electronic Publication. We ask each author, poet, and artist to commit to disclosing the publication history of each of their works regardless of venue when it is submitted and or published. If you cannot commit to this ideal we ask that you remove your work from consideration for publication at FTLR. It is only through full disclosure that some of the suspicion and worry regarding Epublishing can be assuaged. Only through working to improve our image can E-Publishing gain the respect for itself and the authors who choose to publish there.
