NOTE: Welcome to the Dedalus Press submissions page.
THE DEDALUS PRESS is one of Ireland’s best-known and longest established poetry publishers. Our main interest is in new poetry by Irish poets or by poets from elsewhere but living in Ireland. We publish on average 8 books per year, and our open reading periods regularly draw hundreds of new manuscripts, of which we can hope to take on just one or two per annum.
Though we also publish poetry from around the world in English translation (generally in dual-language anthology format), such projects are usually initiated by us and we do not therefore accept submissions through this platform.
We operate a blind reading policy on all submissions, but we also invite cover letters that include general biographical and bibliographical information, to be consulted only after we have formed an opinion on the work submitted.
To be kept informed of our open reading periods, occasional calls for anthology submissions or other opportunities for established, mid-career and emerging poets, please subscribe to our Mailing List and/or follow us on Facebook.

As ever, we look forward to reading your work!
