Exciting news!

A brief up-date, just to let everyone know that anthology submissions are arriving by the inbox full, and we've already got some really high quality writing. At this rate, we might even have to start thinking about bringing the deadline forward but at present it remains September 30th. We've got poetry, short fiction, life writing, and humour and it's looking very good indeed so far.

If you haven't submitted, but you'd like to, there are two ways of going about it:
  1. If your work is finished, and you're happy with it, email it as a word or text doc. to dotterelpress@gmail.com;
  2. If it's not yet ready, but you want to submit and you're sure it'll be done by September, please email a brief outline (subject, style, approximate number of words etc.) to dotterelpress@gmail.com
It's as simple as that. 

And if anyone's planning to submit a full-length piece of writing or a poetry collection to Dotterel Press, please   have a look at the Dotterel Press website where our submissions guidelines can be found. 


  1. As desperately as I would love to contribute, I feel wrung dry in the creative writing stakes. Not even a lovely poem or short story in me at the moment, I'm afraid. Even my blog has taken a beating these past months in terms of truly great writing, as it's all being channelled into my manuscript. And at something like 140,000 (unedited) words so far, I highly doubt you'd have room for what I would consider my best writing in your anthology ;)

  2. Ok, but how about submitting a short extract as a kind of taster? We're hoping the book will showcase the talents of a lot of previously unpublished writers and intend sending copies to agents, editors etc.
