Live Canon 2021 Pamphlet Competition

This is a Live Canon competition for pamphlets of between 18 and 35 poems (this is based on average length poems - if poems are much longer or shorter, participants should use their judgement and feel free to submit more or less.)

Poems must be predominantly written in the English language.

The poems may not have been previously published/self-published as a collection. It is fine if individual poems have appeared in magazines, anthologies or been placed in prizes. Participants are asked to put a note at the start or end of the manuscript which flags up where poems have already been published.

10 pamphlets will be long listed and 3 pamphlets will be selected for publication by the Live Canon Poetry Press.
