Emma Press is seeking submissions | 10-Jul-13

The Emma Press is now accepting submissions for a new series of single-author poetry pamphlets: the Emma Press Picks.

The Emma Press Picks, scheduled for publication in 2014, will showcase contemporary poets at all stages of their careers, presenting a slice of the current poetry scene to the wider public. Each Pick will have a theme or concept, working with the colourful, lively book design to create pamphlets which the publisher hopes will have broad commercial appeal and attract readers who might not usually buy poetry books.

The Picks will be edited by Wright and Newdigate Prize winning poet Rachel Piercey. Poets are invited to submit 10 poems in a single file to picks [at] theemmapress [dot] com, along with an email introducing themselves and explaining how the poems are interconnected.

The deadline for submissions is midnight GMT August 19th 2013.
