The Broadsheet
now open for submissions

The Broadsheet is an annual poetry magazine with a difference - it's big. It's produced as a single, A1 sheet, printed on both sides and folded down to a more manageable A4, but is ideal to stick on a wall or open in a crowded railway carriage.

‚ÄčIt's not just about size, though. The content of The Broadsheet is as wide as its page. They aim to cater for all genres of poetry, from free verse to classical forms and from experimental to mainstream to performance. The bigger page size enables them to handle poems with long and short lines, as well as shaped poems, more easily than in smaller format magazines.

They consider all forms of poetry, and aim to produce a diverse, lively and well-crafted magazine from the submissions they receive.

Currently, they restrict submissions to the South West of England, so if you're a poet living in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire or Bristol and would like to send poems for consideration, please visit the SUBMIT page on their website.

The Broadsheet is launched each year at the beginning of October, to coincide with the Exeter Poetry Festival. We arrange a launch reading to which everybody's invited, with the successful ones asked to read their contributions, if they wish.

Editors: Simon Williams and Susan Taylor.
