We are always looking for contributions from writers and poets worldwide. Prose word count between 1000 and around 2500 words, no maximum word count for poetry. You can contribute up to SIX pieces per title (please do not send any more than a maximum of six). We will publish previously published material too, with details of where previously published and appropriate permission to re-publish (if needed). You retain copyright on all of your work, and can therefore publish again too, as long as you notify us when and where. Please send your contributions in a .doc file. IMPORTANT: Because our collections feature a large number of contributors from many, many countries ( for example LOVE features 194 contributions from 86 writers in over 20 countries!), I'm afraid we cannot pay for contributions. Nor - aside from a PDF copy - can we send contributors a free paperback copy either; it would be both logistically and financially impossible, and we simply couldn't publish if we did. But if you are happy for a little bit of publicity and recognition as remuneration (we'll interview you too, and put your biography on this website, and add any books you have published to our Contributors' Books page), and to see your words in print, then join our wonderful team of writers and poets worldwide and contribute!
Email your contribtution with the book's title in the subject line to: Editor@Collectionsofpoetryandprose.com. Please also send a writers biography for the contributors' sections (100-200 words), and let us know too if you'd like your biography on this website (you can include a pic as well). CLICK HERE to see examples. Get writing!!
Originally from a security background, I am now a genre best-selling author of six non-fiction true crime books, one biography, two self-help guides, as well as two travel and one poetry anthology about Bahrain - where I lived for four years, and where I was also commissioned to produce and publish A Tribute to Abdulla Ali Kanoo a quality book for one of the biggest Arab merchant families in the Gulf region.
On top of this I have written and published a number of Kindle ebooks on a diverse range of topics and subjects, founded and published Tough Talk, an acclaimed online magazine interviewing martial artists, boxers and combat specialists, and The Empath. I also founded The Circuit magazine for the British Bodyguard Association, and originally published the International Directory of Security & Close Protection.
I have also written a large number of articles for magazines and newspapers worldwide including Gulf Insider, Sur La Terre, Time Out, Norfolk magazine, Absolute Lifestyle, Signature, Exotic Car, Rural Life, T Qatar (NY Times style magazine) and many more.
