Shadowtrain magazine welcomes submissions of previously unpublished poems, translations, articles and reviews. Please read the contents of this magazine before you send your work. Get an idea of the kind of writing the editor likes to publish here. The editor's tastes are eclectic, but the magazine's leaning is towards the playful and towards what is sometimes called the 'experimental lyric'. Your submitted text should be included in the body of the email. No attachments please - I will ask for your work in a file if it is accepted (submissions with attachments will be deleted).  Mark your email 'Submission to Shadowtrain' in the subject box and include a brief biographical note. Send 4-6 poems or an extract from a longer poem. (All poems which use extra spaces or alignments should use the space bar, NOT the Tab key, or I will lose the formatting of the poems.)

I will try to get back to you within a month at the most. PLEASE NO SIMULTANEOUS SUBMISSIONS

Note that I cannot enter into personal correspondence about why I may reject someone's poems.

Copyright Issue The British Library is archiving this site. If any contributors have problems over their work being a part of this, and their work being retained for perpetuity on the Library servers – please email me.
