The Emma Press – Call for Submissions

Here’s something for those of you who are not neck deep in NaNoWriMo.

Emma Wright from the Emma Press has been in touch to tell me that they are currently looking for poetry submissions.

They would like poems on the following subjects:

  • Best friends (female) – closing date 16th December 2013
  • Motherhood/Fatherhood – closing date 16th December 2013
  • Homesickness and exile – closing 5th January 2014

For those who are successful, there is a one-off payment of £20 per poet.

The website contains a lot more information about the type of poem that is required and how to submit.  It’s well worth a look – it might trigger those writing juices. Full details can be found here.

    Thank you, Sally. I haven’t really done much poetry but keep thinking I should have a go.

      Wendy – I’m sure you can turn your hand to anything! Best of luck if you have a go.

      Lesley, I’m at 20,000 as at the end of day 10. Tried to get a little ahead to have leeway there for any domestic disasters that might occur! Not sure how much sense the story makes though!

        As long as you’re enjoying it, Sally. Well done!

    Hmm. I’m not a poet (unless silly rhyming couplets count as real poetry) but I’ve bookmarked this website just in case I get inspired … Thank you!

    Thank you for this post.
    Found you on mumsnet while eating some toast,
    Not sure I’ll dabble in poetry though
    Cause I’m not good and I hurt my big toe.

      Brilliant, Hilary! You’re much better at poetry than me!
