Pushing Out the Boat Issue 16
Submissions are now Closed

The call for submissions to Issue 16 of Pushing Out the Boat closed on 30th September 2020. The selection of contributions for publication is now complete and the processes of editing and design are underway, heading for publication in late April 2021.

Successful submitters have been notified by email and asked to provide some brief biographical details for inclusion in the magazine. If you made a submission to POTB you can verify the details and status by logging in and following the link to My POTB.

Please note that, due to limited resources, we are unable to enter into correspondence regarding selection.


We aim to launch Issue 16 in April 2020. Successful submitters will receive a copy of the magazine and an invitation to read or display their work at the launch event. We are planning for this be a ‘real’ live event but, if that’s not possible due to the on-going coronavirus situation, we will devise a virtual online event to launch the new issue.
