Poetry School/Nine
Press Primers 3

Open for submissions

The Poetry School and Nine Arches Press are delighted to announce that Primers Volume 3 is now open for entries. This scheme creates a unique opportunity for talented poets to find publication and receive a programme of supportive feedback, mentoring and promotion. The scheme will select three poets whose work will feature together in Primers Volume 3, a book showcasing short debut collections of work.

With the involvement of Jane Commane (poetry editor at Nine Arches), Hannah Lowe (poet) and the Poetry School, Primers 3 will nurture and support new talent that may otherwise not find an outlet. It also aims to provide an important opportunity for poets to develop their skills, work on their poetry practice, and find audiences for their work. Following editing and mentoring with Hannah and Jane, the Primers Volume 3 collection will be published by Nine Arches Press, and a further series of live events will showcase the three chosen poets at festivals and shows around the country.

Entry Fee is £15

Deadline for submissions is 8th September
