Eye Flash Poetry Journal

From our founding in 2017, Eye Flash Poetry has been dedicated to showcasing and supporting emerging voices in contemporary poetry from across the world and has grown in popularity ever since.

Eye Flash Poetry produces a printed magazine twice a year, edited by Charlotte Begg, Anna Britton, and an eclectic mix of talented guest editors. From our call for submissions, open periodically throughout the year, we chose the content for the magazine. Alongside Eye Flash magazine, we publish 'pocket poetry pamphlets', collections of twelve poems that explore a specific theme. For more details regarding submissions please read our submit page.

Our magazines and pocket poetry pamphlets are available in various independent bookshops, the Southbank Poetry Library, Oxford Mobile Library, and through our website.

Eye Flash is run entirely by volunteers.

Revisiting issue one we remembered how much we love Ellora’s work.

Eye Flash is a long term Ellora fan, so what better way to showcase her than to share her poem ‘Wade’ with you from issue one of Eye Flash Poetry.

If you’re tired of the status quo when it comes to poems from the heart, then read on.
