Poems about Roses for Sissinghurst

Have you ever been to Sissinghurst gardens in Kent? A beautiful place and the home of the Sackville-West family owned by the National Trust now.

On 10th June, Paper Swans, (as part of The Poetry Shelf), is joining with The National Trust for a poetry evening at Sissinghurst Castle. They are looking for poems on the theme of ‘roses’ to publish in a small pamphlet for the event and also on postcards.

Have a look at the site for some inspiration.

As this event is specific to The National Trust, Sissinghurst, they would welcome poems tailored to the property/Sackville-West as well as more generic poems.
  • ONE submission per poet, please.
  • Poems to be no more than 20 lines.
  • We are happy to accept previously published poems, so long as you retain the copyright.
  • e-mail with ‘ROSES‘ in the subject line.
  • Please attach your submission as a word document with YOUR NAME as its title.
  • Closing date is 31st March 2016.
No fee but no prize bar the fame and glory.
We are a small press so we can’t offer you any payment, but can offer lots of publicity and the opportunity see your work in bookshops and at literary festivals.
