Call for submissions: Best of Manchester Poets, Vol. 2 | 23-Jun-11

Call for submissions:Best of Manchester Poets, Volume 2

Deadline: 30 June 2011

Publicity material for this event says:

The yearly print anthology Best of Manchester Poets is now looking for submissions for Volume 2, due to be published in September.Volume 1 was published last year to critical acclaim.
Best of Manchester Poets aims to provide a yearly snapshot of the poetry scene in the country's creative capital.

Anybody who defines themselves as a Manchester poet is invited to send up to two poems for consideration. This includes anybody who lives in Greater Manchester, or who lives elsewhere but considers themselves part of the Manchester poetry scene (they regularly read or perform, or attend readings, for example). Additionally, anybody on a Creative Writing course at any Manchester institution is invited to apply, including those who study online or via correspondence.

Any poem on any topic in any style will be considered, and of any length (although we reserve the right to simply print extracts from very long poems). Note that this is a book containing poems by Manchester poets. It isn't a book of Manchester-themed poems!

The deadline for submissions is 30 June 2011, and more details can be found at There you'll also find an online submission form, as well as a postal address where poems can be sent if desired.
