Reading Windows and SubmissionsFull colour photo of a set of pencils, at different angles, and different types, with a sharpener and lots of sharpened pencil shavings.

Sorry, we will not be considering unsolicited pamphlet or book collections in 2020. Please check this page for any future arrangements.

Reading windows 

No further reading windows are planned. Sorry! The editor is having a rest.

Paid Reading Service

We sometimes offer a paid reading/editing service to poets. Please don’t confuse this with a route into HappenStance publication. 

If interested, enquire via the contact box.

Alternatively, get hold of a copy of How (Not) to Get Your Poetry Published, which could save you a lot of pain, at the same time as sharing many of the unwritten rules of the exquisitely frustrating business of getting poems published.
