The 4 Poets is a biannual poetry magazine based in Toronto, Canada, that features four writers per issue, each with ~20 pages to curate with original work to display the breadth of their practice. We are a publication focusing on writers and artists from anywhere and in any language as long as we find their work to excite us. We hope to be a home for writers who would not be published elsewhere.

We are published by Swimmers Group in Toronto, Canada.

We are not a submission based publication. We always love reading new work and hope to expand our community so if you wish to send us some writing we'd gladly accept it though we cannot promise consideration for publication. We can hopefully give thanks and feedback if you'd like.
