We encourage unknown and emerging writers to submit their work to Pulp Poets Press. We want to create a platform where new and engaging writing can be discovered. That being said, anyone is welcome to submit.
Submit up to four poems at a time in the body of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking for poetry on any theme regardless of form. However, all poetry submitted should be modern – the Romantics are dead, we don’t want writing that emulates outdated styles. It should be contemporary, fresh and represent your own voice – it is unique so use it.
We are looking for writing that doesn’t sit easily among the poetry and prose camps. Please send your work (no more than 1,000 words) in the body of an email. Please state ‘The Other’ in the subject line of your email.
We are highly unlikely to publish work that is in the form of a short story or traditional flash fiction.
All work should be that of the author sending the submission. We accept submissions on the understanding that it is the author’s original work. We are not currently accepting translations.
Simultaneous submissions are welcome. However, please let us know if part/all of your submission has been accepted elsewhere first – congratulations.
We are only looking for previously unpublished writing, the only exception to this being if you have had work published in an online journal that no longer exists (please provide details).
We ask for first publication rights but the copyright reverts back to the author on publication. We just ask that if your work goes on to be published elsewhere (again, congratulations) that you reference in that publication that it was first published with Pulp Poets Press.
Please include a 50 word, third-person bio along with your submission. This will in no way effect your submission; it is there for reader interest alone. Please include a twitter handle if you have one so we can include you in the tweet we will send to promote your work. There is no need for you to include a residential/ office address.
Please wait for a response before submitting more writing, we will always respond.
Apologies, at the moment we cannot offer any form of payment to contributors.
