Call for Submissions

Posted: November 12, 2012 by abigailelizabethwyatt in news, poetry

Call for submissions for an anthology of poetry to be produced by the Red River Poets early in 2013.

Submissions are open to anyone living in Cornwall but the editors want to encourage submissions from writers resident in the Redruth, Pool and Camborne areas. Up to 50 lines, any theme, any style but we admit that we will look favourably on work with something serious and substantial to say.

We regret that we are unable to pay contributors but the anthology will be widely distributed in Redruth and Camborne and the surrounding area. There will also be a launch evening at which successful contributors will be invited to read.

The editors will be Duncan Yeates and Abigail Wyatt. We will respond to all submissions as soon as we possibly can but, once made, our decisions will be final.

This is a not-for-profit project. Our objective is to encourage and support local poets and give a ‘heads up’ for creative writing generally. What we want from you is the right to publish your work in a limited number of anthologies that will be distributed via bookshops and arts venues locally. We may also publish samples of the work on the Red River Poets Facebook page for a period of three months following publication.

E mail me at abiwyatt[thesign]yahoo[dot] if you have further queries and submit your work to the same address no later than 15th December, 2012.

    Hi Abi 🙂 Welcome to Cornish Lit blog, I think this is the first from yourself 🙂 good to see and many thanks for this post. I live in Cornwall so I will try for your anthology – thinking cap on (if I can find it).

    And (sorry if I’m nagging!) hopefully later you’ll be posting about an upcoming spoken word & performance evening in Redruth (the 21st I think) ?

    Must be quite a lot of live lit happening in Cornwall . . .
