New submission arrangements for The Frogmore Papers

Please note that from October 2014 The Frogmore Papers will be operating a system of submission windows, which is increasingly common practice among little magazines. 

Submissions for the March issue will now be considered from 1 – 31 October and submissions for the September issue from April 1 – 30. 

Materials submitted outside these windows will be returned with regret. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but the change has been forced upon us by the sheer volume of submissions. It continues to be the case that postal submissions only will be considered from within the UK, with submissions from overseas welcomed as single Word file attachments sent to:

Verrall returns to Lewes

Jeremy Page, editor of The Frogmore Papers, saw his play Verrall of the White Hart performed in situ last weekend as part of the Lewes Octoberfeast. 

The play, from an idea by John Kenward, tells the story of William Verrall, who brought the excitement of French cuisine to Lewes and to England in the 1750s. He worked at the White Hart, where the play was performed.
