Submissions Guidelines:

A submissions window that was open from 1 August to 31 November 2023 has now closed.
Mica Press is not accepting submissions at present.

When a submissions window is open, submissions may be of a whole collection of poems or a sample, at the writer’s discretion.

Submissions may be sent by email or post. Submissions by post must be accompanied by a stamped addressed envelope if the sender wants the manuscripts returned.

Manuscripts that are not accepted for publication will get a standard rejection email or letter UNLESS feedback is specifically asked for. In other words, feedback is free but will not be given unsolicited.

Manuscripts of mixed prose and poetry will no longer be accepted. Prose works (non-fiction only) should be emailed to Campanula Books
