Thanet Writers are guest editing the next Thanet Poetry Journal and we need your poetry submissions! The only requirements, as with submitting to, is the writer needs some kind of connection to Thanet. Previously published work is accepted. Although only one poem per poet will be accepted, up to three poems can be submitted for consideration.

The Thanet Poetry Journal, created by Neanderthal Beard, has already put out two successful volumes. The first was edited by Stefan Gambrell, aka Neanderthal Bard, and compiled by Connor Sansby of Whisky & Beards; the two founders of Neanderthal Beard. The second was edited by Kirsty Louise Farley. The third volume, to be released later this year, will be edited by the Directors of Thanet Writers CIC: Hannah Fairbairn, Lannah Marshall and David Rowden.

“Whilst Thanet has always had a diverse and interesting poetry scene, in recent years it has blossomed, with written and spoken-word poetry being joined by performance based poetic artistry. This blend of traditional and modern sits comfortably within our seaside towns, where different forms of poetry can thrive as separate entities or become a leaning post for one another, bringing fresh opportunities for confidence building and self-expression. The talent of the Thanet poet is nurtured to their own taste, whether it is in the competitive atmosphere of a slam or in the quiet rooms of a writing group. Thanet Poetry Journal is but a speck of the talent that lies within the Isle, but a beautiful speck that encompasses the spectrum of diversity that exists here. We are very proud and excited to have been asked to guest edit the third edition of the Thanet Poetry Journal.”
