Call for Applications: Primers Volume Three 

The Poetry School and Nine Arches Press are delighted to announce the arrival of Primers Volume Three, the third year of our development scheme, which creates a unique opportunity for talented poets to find publication and receive a programme of supportive feedback, mentoring and promotion. The scheme will select three poets whose work will feature together in Primers Volume 3, a book showcasing short debut collections of work.

The Primers scheme provides an important platform for emerging poets who are seeking to develop their writing and build towards a full collection of poems. With the involvement of Jane Commane (Nine Arches’ poetry editor), Hannah Lowe (poet) and The Poetry SchoolPrimers Volume Three will nurture and supports new talent that may otherwise not find an outlet.

It also aims to provide an important opportunity for poets to develop their skills, work on their poetry practice, and find audiences for their work. Following editing and mentoring with Hannah and Jane, the Primers Volume Three collection will be published by Nine Arches Press, and a further series of live events will showcase the three chosen poets at festivals and shows around the country.
