Guidelines


 

Flarestack Poets is open to submissions from 1st January to 31st March 2017. If you are not already familiar with Flarestack Poets' list, we recommend you look at our pamphlets to gain an understanding of the ethos of our press before sending work. Decisions to publish new titles will be based on the quality and suitability of work submitted.

Please submit a full pamphlet collection of 20-25 pages of poetry, in a readable font such as Times New Roman and spaced as you wish it to appear in print. Poems may have been previously published but should not have appeared together in one collection. Do not include information about previous publication with the poems at this stage but do send a short covering letter giving your postal and email addresses, and outlining your experience in poetry.

Send all your poems in one Word attachment. Poems submitted as several separate attachments will not be opened. The covering letter, however, should be sent as a separate Word attachment. We are not against your submitting simultaneously to other publishers, but we ask you to inform us as soon as your pamphlet is accepted for publication elsewhere. Please send submissions to flarestackpoets@gmail.com, including 'Submission' in the subject.
 
We will respond by 31st May 2017 to all manuscripts received but regret we are unable give feedback on unsuccessful submissions.

We receive no external funding and depend on the revenue from sales of our pamphlets to pay for future publications.
