incidentally, a Call-Out

April 25, 2016

Now, listen carefully, I will say this only once…

We’re asking for submissions, BUT, you have to follow the guidelines given or you won’t be considered

We launched the 1st of our Incidental Poetry series on Halloween 2015, with “transitions” by R.M. Francis. This was followed by “tongues of fire” Jane Burn, “prodigals” Martin Malone, “chasing the sunset” Harry Gallagher, “our lady of the iguanas” Pippa Little & “river songs” p.a. morbid.

IMG_0033If you feel like you would be suitable material for The Black Light Engine Room then please send your manuscript to the address below, BUT, remember these guidelines:

It must be on A4 sheets, using Times New Roman 11 point & No Spacing.

Each manuscript should have a separate piece of paper with your                        name/address/email & short biog, as well as                                                                                          a list of the poems & the name of the collection

The submissions window is from 1st May to 30th June & I will endeavour to let you know as soon as I can if your poems aren’t what we’re after.

If chosen you will be given 5 complimentary copies as payment, and be able to purchase more copies at a reduced price.

You will be expected to promote the chapbook with – preferably – a launch in Middlesbrough, or a similar event in your home town/locality. We can’t afford to pay you to come to Middlesbrough, but we will house and feed you.

If you’re interested then you can send a manuscript to: The Black Light Engine Room, 12 Harrogate Crescent, Middlesbrough. TS5 6PS.

If you want the poems returned then enclose an SAE
