Poetry London submission guidelines

web site

Poetry London is a leading international magazine, where new names share pages with acclaimed contemporary poets. We also publish a wide range of poetry in translation.

The magazine is published in February, May and September. We receive a vast amount of submissions, so reading can take up to three months, and if your work is shortlisted, maybe even longer. You might find it helpful to read the magazine first, to see if your work is suitable.

We appreciate subscriptions, as we depend on these to survive, though if you don’t subscribe it won’t affect your chances!

Please ensure that you pay the correct postage when submitting poems and books for review. As a small charitable organisation, we don’t have the resources to pay for any additional costs incurred and won’t be able to collect any post where incorrect postage has been paid. Thank you!

Poetry London aims to publish the best, most exciting poetry being written now, and we are always interested in work by unpublished poets, as well as celebrated ones.

Submissions are read by Martha Sprackland, Poetry Editor.

Both postal and electronic submissions are welcome and are all carefully read.

For postal submissions, please send a maximum of six poems to:

Martha Sprackland
Poetry London
Goldsmiths, University of London
New Cross
London
SE14 6NW
UK

Always include a stamped addressed envelope for our reply.

We will reply by email if you are sending your work from abroad. In these circumstances you may submit your poems by post and request an email response in your cover letter. Unfortunately we cannot return manuscripts from outside the UK.
