The Broadsheet is an annual poetry magazine with a difference - it's big. It's produced as a single, A1 sheet, printed on both sides and folded down to a more manageable A4, but is ideal to stick on a wall or open in a crowded railway carriage.
It's not just about size, though. The content of The Broadsheet is as wide as its page. We aim to cater for all genres of poetry, from free verse to classical forms and from experimental to mainstream to performance. The bigger page size enables us to handle poems with long and short lines, as well as shaped poems, more easily than in smaller format magazines.
We consider all forms of poetry, and aim to produce a diverse, lively and well-crafted magazine from the submissions we receive.
Submissions are open to poets in the South West of England, so if you live in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire or Bristol and would like to send us poems for consideration, please click on the SUBMIT tab for full details of how to go about it.
Suspended this year
The Broadsheet is launched each year at the beginning of October, to coincide with the Exeter Poetry Festival. We arrange a launch reading to which everybody's invited, with the successful ones asked to read their contributions, if they wish.
