The Blue Nib Chapbook Contest The Blue Nib Chapbook Contest series started in Autumn 2017 and is now in its fourth round. The raison d’être for the series was to discover exciting talent in the poetry world. The contest gives established & emerging poets the opportunity to get their work in front of a well known poet and have it judged by a credible authority. To date we have had Michael Blackburn, Kevin Higgins and for our last round Vivien Jones. We are very excited to have the wonderful Helen Mort judging this round of the contest.
We are now reading poetry for issue 37. Due out 15th March 2019
Do it right
From here you can submit poetry for inclusion on site and in print on the Blue Nib. We look for submission of no more than five poems with all work included on one form. It would help our editors greatly if you would take the time to format your work as follows.
Please capitalise poem titles. We like work to be in Times New Roman with a font size of 12 and single spaced. (See how to single space poems below)
