Talofa Lava & Welcome,

blackmail press was created to give poets, students and poetry lovers in New Zealand a site to read, submit and find great  poetry. 

The impetus is to promote New Zealand poets and to provide an environment for emerging New Zealand poets to share their works.

General issues of blackmail press have no specific theme, we like to present an eccelectic range of voices from Aotearoa and abroad. 

Poets are asked to submit works they feel best showcase their unique voice and may submit a maximum of  5 works for consideration. 

All submissions must include a biography or will not be considered. Simultaneous submissions will not be condered. 

Please send as MS Word, email body text or use submissions page (link below).

Submissions Page: Submissions are open
