Poetry Call Out

This call out is FINISHED. We’ll be in touch with everyone who has submitted (thanks by the way!) by the end of April, other priorities permitting.

Calling all poets who like to write long complex things that take several pages and tell some kind of story. (I don’t mean the Rime of the Ancient Mariner, or Hiawatha, just some thread of coherent narrative!).

It may be swimming against the tide, but we are looking for poems for our first poetry anthologylong poems. So if you are ever frustrated by 40 line limits, this is your chance. We want AT LEAST 40 lines of narrative poetry. Send your PREVIOUSLY UNPUBLISHED IN BOOK FORM offering in before the end of February 2014 for consideration, using the contact form below.

We pay royalties (once production costs have been recovered) but no advances.

  1. I cut and pasted from Word and what it showed me afterwards had no formatting whatsoever. Should I resubmit?

    • The comments box is an evil monster designed to distress poets. It shows you a right mess, but what comes through to me is perfect. So don’t worry if it looks awful.

  2. Sent you two pieces: one in the original had 58 lines and the other 47 lines. But only if the submission came out in lines will you be able to work that out..

  3. My submission showed up afterwards with the last lines missing though I know I copied them as well! What to do?

    • If something has gone missing, do as Adam has and alert us, and we will give you an email address to send the missing portion to. We havent time to do this for layout quirks. we will read as is, and if we like what you’ve sent we will ask for a fair copy.

  4. I have some long narrative children’s poems that I would be happy to send but not sure they would interest you.
