Is there any or does anyone know any poets/ writers that are looking for a publishing opportunity?

So a little more about the project. I would explain it but I feel the website (designed for this purpose) does a much better job of doing so. Please visit the site here: https://www.wordsby.co.uk/
This is not a paid opportunity. All profits from this book are going to UNICEF's Children's Emergency Fund. All submissions are donations. This is a Next Generation Project, the team behind Cook for Syria, Bake for Syria and Migrate which collectively raised a HUGE amount of money and coverage for UNICEF.
The deadline for submissions is August 16th
The prompt is 'HOME'
There will be 3,000 copies of this book printed in it's first run, hopefully to be more if it's successful. I wish I could tell you more of what makes this project SO huge to be a part of (aside from it's incredible concept and the fact it's raising money for an exceptional cause), but a lot of it is still underwraps until launch. You definately want to be a part of this! ☺️
Our launch party, for all contributors, is on the September 8th in East London plus a whole host of events to follow up with the opportunity for contributors to get involved should they want.
To Submit:
Please send your submissions/submission as a PDF to wordsbyuk@gmail.com
Please include a headshot (high res) and a 100 word or shorter bio.

  • I have one unpublished poetry collection, so I am interested for this. I do humanitarian work, so this is very interesting for me.

    You do not have to be a published author to submit, we are accepting all kinds of submissions and have some sensational entries already from both unknown and very well-known writers alike.

    @Nida Elley I already have your submission and will get back to you individually :)


    If you have more questions please drop me a mail bethanygracegill@gmail.com
  • @Selena Kelly

    Hey, could I get an email address so I can send you more info, or could you drop an email to bethanygracegill@gmail.com
  • Hi Bethany, I‘m a writer who’s definitely interested. I would love some more info please?

  • Hi Bethany,

    Hope you're well. I'd certainly be interested! Would love to know some more information about it.

    Thank you!

  • Hi Bethany!

    I would be grateful for the opportunity to write something and would love to know more about this.

    I look forward to your response.

  • Hi Bethany,

    I would be super interested in this. Please let me know what you need from me / next steps :)

    Thank you!
  • Hi Bethany -- I'd echo @Nida Elley's clarifying questions. I'd also add is this a paid opportunity? Are you open to poets/writers from anywhere?
  • Hi Bethany, I actually am:) could you please tell me more about it?
  • Hi Bethany!

    I know a bunch of writers who are always looking to publish (apart from myself). What kind of content/themes are you looking for, exactly? How can they submit to you? Hope you're doing well.
