Separate from our competition for single poems, our annual pamphlet competition accepts completed collections that are 20-24 pages long, and include 18-20 poems. The rest is up to the writer!
The competition is open to women of any nationality from any country, and welcomes poems in any style, of any length, on any subject.
Please ensure you’ve read the rules and FAQs before entering, and please ensure you have the PDF or .doc/.docx file of your entry ready to upload immediately after payment.
Each entry fee allows you to submit one pamphlet. If you would like to enter more than one, please ensure you select the correct number of entries below.

‘I’ve been floating ever since. I’ve had many poems published in magazines and anthologies, but winning the pamphlet competition is a huge validation of my work as a whole, and a collection is something I’ve been striving for. My enormous thanks go to Mslexia and Amy Wack at Seren.’
Mara Bergman, winner of our Women’s Pamphlet Competition 2015
