Submissions – there’s no submissions information on your website. So how will you find the people you want to publish?

There is a description of the kind of work we’re looking for, and there are contact details (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). I’m happy for people to get in touch with their ideas (as many already have) and next year I’ll probably put out a more formal call for submissions. But I also like approaching the sorts of people we want to publish and maybe this is important while we’re starting up and building our definition. 

(The lack of submissions information hasn’t caused a lack of submissions.)

It helps that I’m an editor of a literary magazine that primarily publishes contemporary poetry, and that I’ve written about poets and poetry myself, in books and articles. I do readings, talks, festivals – that kind of thing – and that’s a great way of starting conversations. I also lecture in poetry. So I guess what I’m saying is I talk about writers and books every day, one way or another, and get fair exposure to what’s going on and who’s doing what.

Thanks, Luke. And the very best of luck with future publications!
