The Aldeburgh Gazette is a fortnightly publication, and it has begun to invite submissions of poetry from members.
Some have already been printed, so this is an interesting new outlet for your poems.
Send your poems plus a short, outline biography to Peter Adshead, firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions have to be submitted by 4pm on the Thursday the week before publication. The publisher’s decision is final and there is no guarantee of inclusion of items.
