From Heart to Hands SymbolSubmissions for THE POETS CANVAS (Jan-Mar 2018 Edition) are now OPEN, with the theme: Run Away With Me.

Take me by the hand, lead me astray…

Her Heart Poetry is calling for original works of poetry that reinterpret the timeless theme: Run Away With Me.

Successful works will be those that subvert the expected narratives normally inspired by this title, and we ask poets to dig deep in order to surprise and delight. Although we will consider poems that link this theme to romantic love, we are looking for works that stretch both the writer and the reader and recommend that those submitting to delve down deep into the multiple interpretations of this theme.


Up to 40 works will be selected in the Highly Commended category and will be published to herheartpoetry.com, the relevant quarterly digital anthology, and the Her Heart Poetry Community pages on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Please note that Highly Commended works will also be printed in HARD COPY and digital format in our end of year poetry book, THE POETS CANVAS 2018.

Up to 50 additional poems will be selected for digital publication on the Her Heart Poetry community pages on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.


Submissions are open until December 15th, 2017 and successful entries will begin showing on Instagram and Her Heart Poetry from 1 January, 2018.

To celebrate the launch of THE POETS CANVAS, Her Heart Poetry is waiving the normal admission fee for submissions for this submission period.

Please see the Submission Guidelines for full details.
