The IRON Book of New Humorous Verse: call for submissions


Following a successful bid for Arts Council funding, IRON Press is looking for new humorous poems on any theme to include in an anthology of new comic verse by and for grown ups. We're seeking humorous poems which either have a publication date no earlier than 1990 or are unpublished. We'll be looking in recent collections, poetry magazines and other sources and we are also inviting submissions. Included poets will receive a small payment, a copy of the book and the opportunity to read at launch events. There are no entry fees and no prizes - this isn't a competition.


Submissions of up to 4 poems by post only and enclosing SAE to Eileen Jones c/o IRON Press, 5 Marden Terrace, Cullercoats, North Shields, Northumberland, NE30 4PD, postmarked on or before 31st March 2010. Publication is planned for October 2010. Please read full submission guidelines on the IRON Press website before submitting poems.
