Black Sunflowers open call for chapbooks
What we want: We are looking for completed, polished mini collections of poetry. We would prefer a set of themed poems but are open to all submissions. We want a set of poems that work perfectly as a chapbook, that feel ‘whole’ rather than part of a larger collection. Individual poems may have been published elsewhere but the complete set must be unpublished.
What we like: edgy / experimental / beautiful /unsettling / powerful / unfamiliar / bold / hypnotising. We want to be startled and moved. We want to think ‘yes’ while we are reading. From our first submissions round, we hope to select 4 outstanding poets who we will publish and market extensively
Open to poets internationally aged 18+
What you get: The successful poets will have their chapbook published and distributed by Black Sunflowers press within 1 year of close of submissions.
Successful poets will receive a fee of £150 plus 20 copies of the chapbook.
