Sorry, we will not be considering unsolicited pamphlet or book collections for the foreseeable future. 

Paid Reading Service

We sometimes offer a paid reading/editing service to certain poets. This is not 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 whole exquisitely frustrating (and yet delightful) business.
