Spelt, a UK-based literary magazine focused on rural life and the natural world, is open for submissions through 25 November for their winter issue. Here are the guidelines.

  • Include a cover letter in the body of your email. This should tell us a bit about you (and the poet/filmmaker if different), where your poetry films have been seen and why you think Spelt is a good fit for your work. Also include the title of your poetry film/s and the length in minutes and seconds.
  • Include in the body of your email YouTube or Vimeo link/s for up to two poetry films. (Include passwords if necessary.)
  • Your poetry film/s should not exceed 5 minutes.
  • If your poetry film is selected, we will require it to be captioned.
  • Please ensure you have copyright/permissions for all materials used.
  • Send your submission to
  • Please put POETRY FILM in the subject line of your email.

Poetry film editor Helen Dewbery also has a page of tips for beginning filmmaker-poets.
