Editor: Jeremy Page
- The Frogmore Papers operates a system of submission windows. Submissions for the March issue are considered from 1 – 31 October and submissions for the September issue from April 1 – 30. Materials submitted outside these windows will be returned with regret.
- From within the United Kingdom only works submitted in hard copy by post will be considered. Please enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope for return of manuscript or provide an email address for our response.
- Submission from overseas may be made by email in a single Word attachment, to: email@example.com
- 4 – 6 poems is usually enough; or a couple of pieces of prose (short stories, novel extracts).
- Very long poems and very short poems have more to do than poems of an average length (say, 20 -80 lines). It helps if you’ve seen the magazine and know the sort of work we tend to favour.
- We’re unlikely to have room for very long short stories. 2,000 words is generally plenty.
- Poems where the form drives the meaning are unlikely to find favour.
- Poems written by people who clearly haven’t read any poetry since Wordsworth will not find favour.
- Prose may be experimental or traditional, but is unlikely to be accepted if it’s either very experimental or very traditional.
- We only appear twice a year and, having been around a while, receive a very large number of submissions. You may need to try us more than once.
- Please be patient when awaiting a reply.
