Past, Present, Future

As we mark the third anniversary of our first publication and look forward to the release of our thirty fifth book, we thought it would be a good excuse to celebrate all the wonderful collections we have had the privilege to work on over the past few years and offer you a little treat.

Looking back over our short life its incredible to see some of the amazing poets and artists we’ve worked with and come to know as our friends. It’s been a great adventure watching the Maytree family blossom.

The future looks just as exciting as we welcome our new editor, Roy Marshall to the fold, look forward to finalising work on our 2022 list, and start planning for 2023.

We will have a short open submissions window again in the autumn plus news of our portfolio awards and a new single poem award plus anthology.

Our cover reveals continue to make the news but we thought we would do something a little different for Maytree 36 and give you a sneak preview in our Future section.

Magdalena is the forthcoming collection from Antony Christie and features the image Sunlit Tree by our very own Roy Marshall. Magdalena is scheduled for release on the 20 May 2022 – look out for a more in-depth feature coming soon.
