Paragram has merged with Four Point Press and from now on we will be known as Paragram Press.
This is amazing news because this means in addition to our annual projects – The Paragram Poetry Prize, Paragram Chapbook Challenge and the annual open submission to our anthology we will be able to offer support leading towards individual publication opportunities.
For example if you would like a chapbook or a collection published but aren’t sure where to start Paragram Press can help. Publication of a beautiful book depends on many things and there will be guidance on pages here as we develop the website. 2016 will also see Paragram Press working towards online courses to help new and emerging writers develop their skills both with the writing itself and with its presentation and the production of a print ready manuscript.
The usual exciting projects that you have come to expect from Paragram will continue and the 2016 challenge will be announced at the launch of the current anthology, ‘Spotlights’. Friday March 4th is the date for your diary. Peter Taylor will be reading from the winning chapbook ‘Perspectives from an Open Heart’ and ‘Spotlights’ poets will also be performing their poems. The venue is the home of poetry – the Poetry Café in Betterton Street, Covent Garden. Entrance is free and we begin at 7.30pm.
Currently the original Paragram site is still running and our latest blog can be found here.
Happy Christmas to everyone who has found our new site and we look forward to an eventful and exciting 2016.
