We currently publish pamphlets in two formats. Our main pamphlets are 32-pages long, which leaves approximately 27 pages for poetry. We also publish short-run micro-pamphlets, which can be anything from 8-16 pages. This format suits a longer single poem or a series of shorter poems on a particular theme.
Our general submissions window is currently closed. Sorry! We’ll be looking to open it up again in the last few months of 2019, so please do check back then.
However, please note that we’re still encouraging submissions to our Biggin Brigs series of pamphlets, which feature poetry in Scots, Gaelic and English. If you’re involved in a project that works across these three languages then please do get in touch.
It would be great if you could follow these simple guidelines while submitting:
- Please email us between three and five poems.
- Please send your poems as one .doc, .docx or .txt file.
- Please also include your name, a little background about yourself and where (or if!) you’ve had poems published before. It would be handy to know where you’re based too.
Take some time to get acquainted with what we do… of course we’d greatly encourage you to purchase some of our previous pamphlets to get a true flavour of the kind of work we’re interested in.
Our submissions email address is: submissions [at] tapsalteerie.co.uk.
