Call For Poets

I'm not a poet, but I know how difficult it can be to get your poetry published, especially if you're an 'unknown' poet. There aren't many magazines accepting new poetry at the moment, so when I caught sight of Iota Magazine's submissions page, I had to tell you about it. 

You can see other opportunities on my call for submissions page here.

Iota Magazine is a small press magazine. They welcome submission of new poetry all year round. Some of the guidelines they've published on their site are:
They do not accept previously published poetry and require poets to send in not more than six pieces at one time.
They require poems written in English only, and translations should be marked as such.
They will also consider poetry anonymously, so a separate top sheet with your details is required.

Compass Books Call For Submissions

Compass Books is a publisher looking for authors who write instructional books. So if you're a writer who speaks at conferences or workshops about your chosen discipline, this publisher may be a good fit for you. They have international authors on their books and are interested in writers who tutor in how-tos like travel, sport, food, writing etc.

You need to submit your manuscript through their website or email (a short proposal). There's a submission form on the site and I would use this in the first instance if I were making an application.
Just so you're prepared, you'll need to send a synopsis, opening chapters, author biography, and full chapter breakdowns (so create this if you haven't got one).

Children Publisher Call For Submissions

Andersen Press is a specialist children's book publisher. They publish children's picture books (mostly pictures with little text for infants) and other children's books (older fiction - up to 75,000 words).

If you're a children's writer or have a kids' manuscript in a drawer somewhere, it's time to dust it off, give it a once over and send it away to Andersen Press.

It's not often that publishers are calling for submissions, so when you see one you have to take the plunge as soon as possible. The only drawback is that Andersen Press only accepts paper submissions by regular post. This means you have to print out your submissions/drawings and spend money on stamps to send them away.

Anne's a published author, freelance writer and experienced editor. She's just signed her second publishing contract this year with 2 separate publishing houses. You can hire her or see her available books in the side panel on the right.
