Our first-ever submissions window is now open!
ignitionpress welcomes submissions by emerging poets from 5-26 November 2023.
Established in 2017, ignitionpress is an award-winning poetry pamphlet press with an international outlook which publishes original, arresting poetry from emerging poets.
Pamphlets published by the press have so far received five Poetry Book Society Pamphlet Choice selections (for A Hurry of English by Mary Jean Chan, Alycia Pirmohamed’s Hinge, Ripe by Isabelle Baafi, Fathima Zahra’s Sargam / Swargam, and When the Flies Come by Fahad Al-Amoudi). Hinge by Alycia Pirmohamed was also shortlisted for the Michael Marks Poetry Award, 2020, and the press won the Michael Marks Publishers' Award in 2021.
You can find out more about the press and how we work in this interview on the Friday Poem website with our Managing Editor, Les Robinson, or watch this short video that we produced for the Michael Marks Awards, 2021.
