Open for Submissions!

Landing Press’s new project for 2021: An anthology of poems about housing

Whether you own a house, rent or are homeless, housing is a source of nostalgia and comfort, a source of memories of the countries you grew up in, a source of stress and fear, a changing landscape in Aotearoa New Zealand. We want to hear anything you have to say about housing.

We want poems from people who have written a lot, and poems from new writers. For some of you, writing for Somewhere a cleaner was your first step into writing. Now that you've taken that first step, you might want to take another step! As you know, if you need help, we'll help you.

You can send us up to 3 poems. Maximum length of each poem 40 lines. Put each poem on a separate page, and with each poem, include your name and contact details (email address, postal address and ph no). There also might be a small story behind your poem you want to include.

Send your poems to by Friday 18 June 2021.

And please forward this information to anyone who might be interested.

We plan to publish this anthology in October 2021. All writers included in the anthology will get a complimentary copy of the book. Together you bring a wonderful diversity to writing. We look forward to hearing from you.
