Notes from the Underground
creative writing for the internet
We offer much advice on going into the writing industry. Deep in the heart of the average agency chief who works with copywriters is the belief, probably set in place at birth, that when push comes to shove the client really knows best about their advertising. It is their money, no? Executives as a group, therefore, have an unpleasant lot; they lead a hassled and hag-ridden life, bothered from all corners of the compass.
They are always haunted by the idea of those pre-booked places in publications needing to be filled by a certain date; and constantly annoyed by the filling of them by the annoying demands and continuing putting off of the clients on the one hand, and the big attitudes and continuing procrastination of the imaginative crowd on the other.
Release a copywriter on an unsuspecting client and he will fiercely protect the work they’ve done with a strength of mind that would lift tables. There is, obviously, a simple explanation for this. If the writer concerned worth their salt, they will have put into any given text a little of what passes for their spirit; and no one takes a person’s soul away without their putting up a fight.Writing’s a tough industry to get into.

New writing - poetry, stories and novels
Here we celebrate literature written by upstarting writers, including poets, bloggers, novelists and many other artists.
We offer readers a varied list of the most imaginative and stimulating poetry from Britain and abroad. Our wonderfully designed books scale from lost modernist novels to translations of main international poets and exciting collections by the best young UK poets around.
We brings revolutionary and marginalised voices to your attention, mirroring the value of their work in stunning book design, such as dust jackets; big font; and new art for the covers. With its varied and growing list, we break down the barriers between contemporary schools of verse, to crate a new poetics based on respect for design, innovation and the challenge of genuine communication.
Due to a large volume of submissions, the editorial team was unable to meet in the spring, as intended. We are now arranging an August meeting to discuss these submissions, and choose a shortlist. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Being able to help raise the funds for your book does not mean the guarantee its acceptance. We are always looking for verse that formally and thematically engages, moves, challenges and informs us. Your skill at raising advance orders mirrors the strength and importance of your writing. It will also show your commitment to a group of readers and fellow authors, a commitment we consider to be vital to the health of the poetry world.
