Poetry Submissions

Here at Up! HQ we love reading your poems which land on our desk every month from all over the world. If you’d like to submit any of your work, our current issue always features the theme for the next month’s edition.

You can send up to 3 poems (maximum of 20 lines each please) to admin@positivelyup.co.uk.

Feel free to interpret the monthly theme however you wish, but you might like to take a look at some of our previous issues to see the kind of poems we publish. We don’t mind if your work has been published elsewhere, and we’re happy to take simultaneous submissions (we just ask that you let us know if your work is accepted by another publisher).

Our current callout is for poems on the theme of HOME and the deadline is 10th May.
Send us your poems along with a photo of your home and we’ll select the best to feature in a poetry exhibition, as well as a special edition of Up! that will appear in July.


Below are some examples of the kind of poems we love (taken from our November 2021 ‘food’ edition):
