THE LEVEL CROSSING Seeking Poems of Place

(NB: SUBMISSIONS for this publication are now closed. We received an unprecedented number of submissions, from all over the world, and will now get down to reading through them carefully and making our selection. Thanks to all of those who submitted work and helped us spread the word.)


Dedalus Press is looking for (previously unpublished) poems for a feature in its new occasional journal, THE LEVEL CROSSING.

Poems on the subject of place (home place, strange place, imagined place …) should run to a maximum of 20 lines and may be in any form. Prose poems are welcome. Poets may submit up to three poems each, but no poet will have more than one poem chosen for publication.

We pay a one-time fee of €30 for each poem published.

The feature will appear in THE LEVEL CROSSING, number 1, in both print and download editions (the latter available free from the Dedalus website) in April/May 2016; a selection will also feature on the Dedalus blog at the same time. All other rights remain with the authors.

Poems must be received by end March 2016 (after which no further submissions can be considered). Submissions may be made only through No correspondence will be entered into regarding submissions, and we are not in a position to offer feedback on unsuccessful submissions, but we do look forward to reading the poems.

Poems may be submitted by visiting the Submittable below and following the instructions: all you have to do is fill in a brief Contact form; upload a Word document or similar text-only file, etc. To ensure a fair and unbiased reading of all submitted work, the author’s name should NOT appear on the uploaded text file but only in the online Contact form.

Feel free to post this call for submissions elsewhere. Poetry Matters: Spread the Word.
