Submit Your Work

This project is creating an open submissions process for any UK based writers wishing to have work considered for the Valley Press Anthology of Prose Poetry. We positively welcome submissions from writers of diverse backgrounds, but you do need to be resident in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. 

  • You can submit three poems (no more than 300wds each in length) as three separate Word documents between 18th June 2018 and 3rd Sept 2018. Please don’t include a cover letter.

  • We will let writers know by November 1st, 2018 if your work has been accepted for the anthology so if you have not heard back from the project by then, please feel free to send the work elsewhere. We are very sorry but there will be limited space (only 60-65 poems) available in the final publication, so this process will be competitive.

  • The work can have been published elsewhere but you will need to own the copyright and indicate where and when it was published on the relevant prose poem document.

Please include your details in the form below. Along with your submissions, we will need an email address, postal address and the name by which you wished to be known if featured in the publication. These details will not be shared with any other organisations (apart from our partner Valley Press) and will be stored securely in line with current data protection legislation.

If you have any problems uploading your prose poems, please get in contact with myself – Anne Caldwell via this website.

Submissions are closed. The submission window is 18th June - 3rd September 2018.

Privacy Policy

Please note, we will only contact you via email about your submission. We will contact you separately once by email to ask you if you wish to be a subscriber and be kept up to date on the project’s development, informed of the book’s progress, future workshops and launch events. We ask for your address as a way to verify that you are UK based. By submitting this form you consent to Prose Poetry UK's partners processing the data you provide in order to review submissions and create the anthology. Your data will not be shared with any other parties. If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch.
