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.

Use this form to submit reviews only. We accept book reviews for inclusion on The Blue Nib website. We will also consider reviews of relevant films, series, theatre and performances. We especially would like to see reviews of live mic events, festivals and performances.
Ideally titles of Book, Films, blogs etc should be in italics, without inverted commas. Please include information on where book can be purchased, or performance can be seen. Also price of book or event. If this is a book review then the barcode of the work and a link to an Amazon/Kindle page could also help readers find it. We like work to be presented in Times New Roman, font size 12 and single spaced.
When you submit you will be taken to a second form asking for an author biography and image.
