a little about

Paper Swans Press

Paper Swans Press is a small, independent publisher of poetry and flash fiction. We publish anthologies and run an annual pamphlet prize. In 2016 we were shortlisted in The Saboteur Awards with our anthology, Schooldays. 

We also run online competitions and host projects with The Poetry Shelf to bring poetry into the local community.

Paper Swans is run by Sarah Miles, supported by a team of talented editors. Our key aim is to support emerging poets/writers as well as those who are more established in their field. 

We only accept submissions in accordance with our current call/guidelines. For general enquiries, please contact us here.
