Full Poetry Collections

Exciting news: Liverpool University Press is inviting submissions of first full collections (i.e. collections from poets who have not yet had a full collection published) to its Pavilion Poetry series. I asked via Twitter about the quantity of poems to submit and was told ‘as long as it’s above 48 pages, we’d love to see it’. Get your submission in by 31 January 2017. Visit the website for full details of what to send (paper submissions only).
