for Carcanet BooksThe date of Carcanet’s 2022 submissions window has not yet been announced. In due course it will be announced here.
Any submissions received outside the submissions window will not be considered or held for consideration.
We are seeking full-length poetry manuscripts in English or translation. We are accepting no short stories, children's prose/poetry, or non-poetry related titles (academic, biography etc) at the current time. We are not currently considering novels in English or translation.
During submissions windows, Carcanet will consider work sent in PDF form to Submissions@carcanet.co.uk
. Please include an email and provide an email address for our response. If you are an individual subscriber to PN Review
, please indicate this on your covering e-mail.
Writers wishing to submit poetry should familiarise themselves with Carcanet's books and with PN Review
. Many Carcanet authors have come to the attention of the Press by way of PN Review
Decisions are usually taken within eight weeks, though in the current circumstances we cannot guarantee this.
The Editor's decision is final. Given the volume of submissions we receive, it is not possible for us to offer feedback on work submitted. We discourage simultaneous submissions.
