Contact Us


We treat all our emails like letters, however, as an independent publisher with a real dog to walk, our own poems to write and a day job to go to, replies can take a little time. Hearing from writers and readers alike reminds us why we publish Butcher’s Dog. You're very welcome to get in touch just to say hello, tell us what you thought of our latest offering or invite the Dog out to play.

Submissions are currently closed.
Please don’t send poems to any email addresses listed on this site. We never read work outside of the defined submissions cycle. To give an idea of our submissions window and timescale: we open calls in January/May for publication in May/August. It is highly likely the portal will experience traffic during peak periods i.e. the closing days or – gasp – the last hours.

New Subscribers, please note: all purchases made after 3rd July 2019 will be posted after 10th August, due to writing residency.
