For those of you based in the South of England, the Poetry Book Fair in London looks well worth a visit. (There is a poetry competition this year, but it has a fee for entry.) Visit the Fair from 10am to 4.30pm at Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, WC1R 4RL. Then go to the party from 4pm to ‘late’ at The Square Pig & Pen, 30-32 Procter Street, WC1V 6NX. The event promises free entry, free poems, readings, discussions and more than 70 publishers. Find the Fair on Twitter or Facebook.
Published three times a year by Cinnamon Press, the editors of ‘Envoi’ describe it as: ‘a 96 page, large format, perfect bound matt laminate journal with an eye to presenting the poetry well on the page.’

We aim to provide a platform for new work from both established and new poets. We generally try to select a small group of poems that represent a poet’s voice so please send a group of poems (they do not have to be related), Submissions will be reviewed in batches in November/December (for February), March/April (for June) and July-early September (for October). We welcome submissions from Wales, the UK or from anywhere in the world

Copied and pasted from the Portent Press website (http://www.portentpress.com/): We are currently accepting submissions of poetry pamphlets and collections to be released from January 2015. The submission period for poetry pamphlets will remain open until further notice, with ongoing reading. We aim to respond to all submissions within two months.
For full details of what we are looking for, please see the details on our submissions manager.
Just seen that there is a fee to submit your pamphlet to this one (although it is free if the Press has published one of your poems). Small indie publisher The Emma Press has a call-out for poetry pamphlets – but submit soon as the deadline is 31st August 2014. The Emma Press’s usual conditions apply – you must either have bought a copy of an Emma press book/ebook in the past calendar year, or you must have had a poem published in an Emma Press book. http://theemmapress.com/
