Visual Verse

Visual Verse is open for its monthly submission window. Submissions close 15 September 2021 until the next window on 1 October! View the visual prompt and write your response. As ever, I would encourage you to write your one-hour piece and submit asap, as I believe this increases your chances of getting it published. Submit here.

Body poems for The Alchemy Spoon

The Alchemy Spoon is open for submissions on the theme of “Body” for issue 4. Submit up to 3 unpublished poems by 30 June 2021. As ever, the editors are particularly keen to hear from poets who’ve come to poetry late, “often following retirement or a life change”. The publication appears online 3 times a year, and is also available in print-on-demand. https://www.alchemyspoon.org/
