The East Midlands is a hive of poetic activity with performance word nights happening right across the region, showcasing the talents that exist in our region. Bearded Badger Publishing want to take that talent and put it on the page, by publishing a series of poetry chapbooks entitled 'TRA[verse]', with an aim as the dictionary definition suggests to travel across or through all environments and barriers.


Are you an up and coming poet based in the East Midlands looking to get published? Perhaps you have been writing or performing poetry for a while without getting published? Bearded Badger Publishing Co. is on the lookout for exciting poetry to develop and publish into quality publications. Our new imprint 'TRA[verse]' has a prime task to focus on developing local East Midlands poetry talent, through careful and considerate editorial support, with a fully transparent relationship between the poet and the publisher, helping you get your work to a wider audience.


We aim to publish around 4-6 chapbook sized titles per year.


Submissions are currently closed.
