Submissions

‘A Restricted View From Under The Hedge’

If you wish to submit up to Five Poems for consideration for our magazine, please simply email them to poetry@hedgehogpress.co.uk.

We prefer to receive them in RTF, DOC, DOCX or TXT format if possible.

We will accept submissions at any time on the basis that work that is accepted will be placed in the next available magazine. However, we are flexible if there is a good reason.


Pamphlet or Book Submissions

We are currently only accepting submissions for single-poet-collections via our competitions or by invitation, although in the future we intend to begin to accept submissions directly.

Our terms for publication either way are simple:

  1. We see publication as a partnership and rather than pay royalties, instead we give the author an advance in the form of 20% of the first and any subsequent print runs. I should say, we don’t ask the author to pay for anything – we aren’t in the vanity market.
  2. We don’t have contracts, and the author retains all rights. All we would ask is that they refrain from publishing/printing the work elsewhere until after the print run we have produced has sold through.
  3. Authors can buy additional copies of their work at a 40% discount off the RRP, plus P&P, although there is no obligation for them to do so either before or after publication
  4. We will do our best to sell the author’s work and expect the author to make all reasonable efforts to do so too.
