UAlberta Press Poetry Reading Season: September 2022

University of Alberta Press is accepting poetry manuscripts between September 1 and 30. At the end of the submission period, the Press will select up to three manuscripts for publication in 2024 in the Robert Kroetsch Series of Canadian creative writing.

We welcome submissions by poets from diverse and marginalized backgrounds, and are interested in seeing work from a broad range of experiences and aesthetics. Note: All submissions must be from poets who are Canadians or landed immigrants.

Here are the three poets we are publishing in 2023: Joe Bishop, Sonja Ruth Greckol, and Uchechukwu Peter Umezurike.

If you have any specific questions, please contact Michelle Lobkowicz, our Acquisitions Editor, Humanities and Literature.

Thank you for spreading the word and sharing your work with us!
