It’s that time of the month again… One image, one hour to write a response. This month’s image is a photograph by Miikka Luotio. As always, I recommend submitting as soon as possible, to increase your chances of having your piece selected for publication on the website. Image and submission info here. Deadline: 15 May 2022.
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.
Submit – Visual Verse
June issue of online art-to-poetry journal Visual Verse opened 1 June 2021 for submissions. As ever, give yourself an hour to write a response to this month’s image – and submit asap.
Submit – Visual Verse
Sorry I’m a few days late in posting. Visual Verse is open for May 2021 submissions, written within one hour, in response to the image shown here. I’ve found submitting asap is best.

The Manchester Review Open to Submissions
The Manchester Review is published out of the University of Manchester’s Centre for New Writing. It is an online publication, which was launched in 2008. It is open to international submissions.
Copied from website: ‘Submissions are now open for Issue 14 until midnight, 31st March 2015. See below for guidelines. The Manchester Review publishes two issues per year in Spring and Autumn. During our submission period we welcome unpublished fiction, poetry and essays from both established and new writers. Please make no more than one submission per issue. If you do not hear back from us in time for the upcoming issue, your work will be considered for the next one. Simultaneous submissions are permitted.’ [Ed’s note: this means you can send the same work to another publication simultaneously – but do let either know, if your work is accepted by the other.]
‘Poetry: Please send no more than 3 poems.
We only accept Word documents or PDF files. In the subject line, please include your name and the category (Fiction/Non-Fiction/Poetry/Art) and make sure that identifying details are also on your submission.
We strongly encourage online submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org’
