A journal of contemporary international poetry

since 1969

Thank you for visiting us at Skylark Publications UK

Skylark was launched in 1969 in India as a quarterly on the contemporary literature in translation by the late Baldev Mirza and Yogesh Patel as its editors. After 100 printed issues and a few books, it completed its journey. Reinvented, its independent journey begins now in England as the publishers with plans to help Diasporic writing and expat literature.

 

It is currently promoting South-Asian poets and writers through various channels, including Word Masala books, events, awards and ezine. In 2015, it has started honouring very important poets of the Diaspora dedicating once a month an ezine to one of the ranks as a Poet-of-the-Month. The ezine is extremely successful in achieving many objectives. Please find out more here.  

Word Masala, a non-profit Foundation has Lord Bhikhu Parekh, Lord Dholakia,  as its patrons and Dr Debjani Chatterjee MBE as a Consultant Edior. It aims to promote the Diasporic writers and poets through various channels.

We have started honouring South-Asian poets each month through our ezine, highlighting their representative poem, and their bio. Every month  the ezine is packed with  very useful information on markets and submissions open. Find out what else we offer by clicking here.

Current requirements can be found here.

Please join our group to help each other. Write a review on a book by the other members. Then ask us to submit it to the selected magazines for you if you cannot.

Reception at the Palace


Yogesh Patel with The Queen representing poetry, Skylark Publications UK and the Word Masala Foundation. The breadth of our work across is now internationally sought and enjoyed by many poets. The invitation at the Buckingham Palace was for the launch of UK-India Year of Culture 2017. Thanks to British Council and Baroness Prashar for making sure that poetry and its impact on our lives

were not forgotten in the cultural aspects where celebrity, fashion and business dominate.
