The Centre for Modern Poetry is editing a new book series on modern poetry
to be published by the Peter Lang Publishing Group
( The series will include monographs, conference
proceedings and other edited collections. Our focus is principally on poetry
written in English from 1890 to the present day, although we may consider
projects which partially fall outside this remit. We are interested in work
on all forms of poetry whether conservative or avant-garde, and we
especially welcome innovative work which extends our knowledge of the field
of modern poetry or adopts promising theoretical, historical or
interpretative approaches. Submissions should include the following (1) a
summary of no more than 800 words, (2) a projected timetable of completion,
(3) a brief CV of the monograph author(s) or collection editor(s) showing
publications, and where possible (4) a sample chapter.

The proposed work must not be currently under consideration elsewhere and we
aim to give a decision quickly.

Please send two copies of the submission material to the address below.
Initial email inquiries are welcome.
