General guidelines for poetry collections:

Please familiarise yourself with our current titles before submitting your typescript for consideration. We publish collections of short poetry and art, in varying lengths. Our signature house style informs page presentation, book size and design. Please send an initial email query, telling us a little about yourself and your project; including vision, readership, and sample work. If your project is deemed right for publication with wildflower poetry press, we will ask for 50-100 poems to select from. The first stage is developmental editing (selection, arrangement and finding the pulse of a book); followed by copy-editing (corrections and suggestions for revision); typesetting; design and finally proofreading. You will be sent a digital proof to read, correct and approve before publication. There is no fee involved at any stage of this process; however, we ask that you play an integral part in promoting your book. Copyright remains with the author. Please be assured that we value poetic freedom and throughout the process outlined above, we strive to remain sensitive to the poet’s voice. All enquiries please to—, thank you!


Please note—we also offer editorial services to guide and support the SELF-PUBLISHING author/artist, every step on the way from typescript to publication. To find out more, please click on this link: DANDELION: editorial services
