Nine Pens Nine Series

The 'Nine Series Anthologies' are open for submission. They are aiming to platform some of the best poetry talent from the UK & Ireland together under the same cover, curating voices, experiences and styles that riff off each other.

Each anthology will showcase the work of 3 poets - with each submitting 9 poems: no more, no less. Entrants can choose either to submit individually and be paired up with other poets, or they can submit as a trio with other writers they know.

The anthologies are open to everyone, whether they have been published before or not. The main purpose of the 'Nine Series' is to help highlight outstanding work, give opportunities for publication and networking, to develop a space for poets between projects and to offer a place for poems that might not fit in conventional pamphlets and collections.
