Burning Eye Books Seeks Performance Poets

Burning Eye Books are looking for submissions and proposals from Performance / Spoken Word Poets.

Deadline: Mon 1 Sep 2014

We get many submissions from poets whose work may well have merit, may well have been published by fine journals like the Rialto and Poetry London, but has never been performed. We turn them all down. 

We ONLY work with performers. This is our niche. BUT if you are of the performer persuasion feel free to send in a proposal. Tell us who you are, what you do, how long you have been doing it and what your plans are for the future. In brief. 1 page of A4 equivalent MAX. All in the body of the email. No attachments at this stage. Plus 5 poems. Your big hitters. Your greatest hits. The ones people ask for. Also in the body of the email.
