Reviewers – poetry

If you have a collection of poetry and would like it reviewed you could try some of the contacts below (some are also opportunities should you review books). Unfortunately I don’t write much poetry and read even less so I’m the wrong person to ask…

  • Do you know of someone who reviews poetry? Please let me know.
  • According to magazine welcomes “completely unsolicited poetry, short fiction, art and reviews”.
  • If you want to aim high there’s The Guardian newspaper.
  • Salt Publishing’s Horizon Review reviews literature and art.
  • Mad Hatters’ Review is looking for poems, flash fiction, short interviews, reviews etc. especially writing that’s “edgy, risky, gutsy…”.

  • Oxford-based Tower Poetry reviews books of poetry monthly for their ‘Poetry Matters’.
  • What The Dickens magazine is “always looking for submissions of not only fiction and poetry but also non-fiction and articles. I even accept artwork, photos, book reviews, film reviews and so on. I do set a theme for each issue though can be flexible around the non-fiction side of things. There are also competitions and give-aways which are all free to enter”. 🙂
  • Do you know of someone who reviews poetry? Please let me know.

I do however welcome poetry for this blog’s Post-weekend Poetry slot… and Phillip Ellis reviewed some books on there. 🙂
