Pamphlet Competition

The submission window for our 2019 Pamphlet Competition is now open. 

This is a competition for pamphlets of between 18 and 35 poems.

(This is based on average length poems - if your poems are much longer or shorter, please use your judgment and feel free to submit more or less.)  

If you are unsure whether your manuscript is eligible, don't hesitate to contact us.

You may enter more than once.

Poems must be predominantly written in the English language.

The poems may not have been previously published/self-published as a collection. It is fine if individual poems have appeared in magazines, anthologies or been placed in prizes. Please put a note at the start or end of the manuscript which flags up where poems have already been published.
Please do not include your name on your manuscript, so all entries can be considered anonymously.

10 pamphlets will be long listed and 4 pamphlets will be selected for publication by the Live Canon Poetry Press.

There is an entry fee of £12 per pamphlet.

Entries should be submitted via submittable here:
