PN Review invites active subscribers to submit work digitally to Please see the submissions windows below.

Non-subscribers may send work by post to the Editorial Office, observing the same submission windows as outlined below.

Our address is:

Carcanet Press Ltd
4th Floor, Alliance House
30 Cross Street
M2 7AQ

Please provide an email address for a response. Submissions will not be returned.

Poetry contributions

There are normally two submissions windows a year for poetry, the month of December and the month of June.

This year the June submission date has had to be postponed because one of the editors is undergoing eye operations (trabeculectomy) and will be out of commission. The December submissions window remains open.

We do not consider poetry submissions from anyone outside those times.

Writers wishing to send work should familiarise themselves with PN Review. Verse submissions should generally not exceed five pages (verse in English or translation). Copies of the original texts should accompany translations where possible. We discourage simultaneous submissions.

We are not currently interested in short stories, children's prose/poetry, non-poetry-related work (academic, biography etc.).

Prose contributions

We welcome a variety of prose contributions at any time, for News & Notes, Reports, Letters, Essays and Reviews. Feel free to consult with the editor in advance of submission ( Bear in mind that PN Review is not an academic journal. It is intended for readers and writers with a broad interest in poetry and its contexts. Prose submissions should generally not exceed fifteen double-spaced pages of work. As with poetry contributors, prose contributions from active subscribers can be submitted by email. Non-subscribers are asked to send work by post to the Editorial Office (see address above).

Response time

We cannot promise a response time: the enormously increased volume of submissions to PN Review is heartening, but our team is small, and there are sometimes delays. We regret this. We try to respond within ten weeks.

The Editors' decisions are final.
