Poetry submissions: Travel-themed poems for The Emma Press

3b4079c1-e603-4d76-bebb-d6f611764a4a

 

Poems are invited for In Transit, a collaboration between The Emma Press and the Centre for Travel Writing Studies at Nottingham Trent University

Send poems that deal with the experience of being in transit. Submissions may describe journeys taken by any mode of transport, and may be either formal or experimental. Submissions that employ poetic form to convey a sense of motion are particularly welcome. In Transit's editors are Sarah Jackson and Tim Youngs.

To submit to In Transit, poets must be members of the Emma Press Club. Send up to three poems (each no longer than 65 lines) by the closing date of 28 May.
