Submissions Update

Making final decisions on submissions is probably both the most delightful and most difficult time on the V. Press publishing calendar.

We had a very very impressive shortlist to choose from and, in terms of quality, all the manuscripts that made it through to the final round were very publishable.

But, of course, we don't have the time and resources to take on them all and the final, difficult, decisions were sent out 2-3 weeks ago.

I'm delighted that we will be publishing three poetry pamphlets, two flash pamphlets and two full collections from the latest submissions window. We also already have Gram Joel Davies' collection Bolt Down This Earth scheduled for the end of March, and are keeping in contact with several other poets.

We're not going to release all of the title details yet. But if you follow us on twitter (https://twitter.com/vpresspoetry), you may get a sneak preview of some of the pamphlets lined up for 2017...

Meanwhile, looking ahead to the next submissions window, we don't yet have a definite date but do hope to have an open window again at some point in 2017. Please keep an eye on the website or follow us on twitter/FB for the latest news on this.
