A Guide to Getting Published in UK Poetry Magazines published by Robin Houghton (Telltale Press, 2018).
I have been following Robin Houghton’s blog for a very long time – first as UKpoetgal and latterly her Poetry blog which covers a whole range of poetry related topics in an honest and candid way. She’s brilliant at sharing what’s on and what’s up in the poetry world alongside her own submissions successes and rejections.
Her work appears in many magazines including Agenda, Bare Fiction, Envoi, Magma, Poetry News and The Rialto, and in numerous anthologies. Also in The Best New British and Irish Poets 2017 (Eyewear). She won the Hamish Canham Prize in 2013, the Stanza Poetry Competition in 2014 (and was runner-up in the same competition in 2016) and the New Writer Competition in 2012. Her pamphlet The Great Vowel Shift was published by Telltale Press, the poets’ collective she co-founded in 2014. In 2017 she self-published a handmade limited edition mini-pamphlet Foot Wear. After winning the Cinnamon Press Poetry Pamphlet competition in 2017, Robin’s third pamphlet, All the Relevant Gods. So she is a real expert in the sometimes overwhelming field of magazines and submissions.
A Guide to Getting Published in UK Poetry Magazines does exactly what it says on the tin… a step-by-step manual of where to send, how to record submissions, profiles of print magazines and ezines. It helps you figure out where to send your work even covers what to do when work is rejected (eeek). And all this for £5 – money well spent I’d say. So get this pamphlet and get busy sending out your work this year. Bon chance!
