submissions

Think you might be suitable?

To stay true to our charitable purpose, we urge those who have been service users, and those who have been on a turbulent journey in life to submit. Even if you feel like your poetry needs work, go ahead and send it in. If accepted, we will be able to work with and mentor you throughout the PoetsIN Program.

Send us an email with three poems from your collection in an MS Word file (.doc or .docx). Include a bio (no more than one page) telling us your story. Finally, include within the Word Document a synopsis of your overall collection, how many poems you’d be including in the full book or chapbook, and discuss the theme within your collection.

We aim to get back to all submissions within three months, if not sooner. Please note, this may be longer during busy periods. If you haven’t heard from us within three months, please feel free to give us a gentle nudge.

Once you’ve compiled the above, send it to publishing@poetsin.com. Please note, this email address is for submissions only, if you have any queries or want to get in touch for any other reason, please fill out the contact form on the contact page.
