Submission guidelines

Submit a full pamphlet (30 pages or fewer) to of poems in one document (Word or rtf) – include your name and address on each page. The author must be currently living in the UK or Ireland.

The cover page should include details of previous publications along with the title of your pamphlet and number of poems. An outline of your poetry experience can be included here.

Please look at our back catalogue for previous publications and we encourage you to buy one.

Against the Grain Poetry Press publishes only 4 or 5 titles a year, so competition is stiff. Please bear this in mind when you submit.

We are a self-funding press and rely on sales of our pamphlets to fund future publications.
