New Poetries IV celebrates the distinctiveness and diversity of new poetry in English. The eleven poets included are variously rooted in Europe, America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Australasia; they write with the imaginative energies less of world travellers than of world citizens. Vigorous, observant, questioning, entertaining, this writing is passionately alive and intellectually alert. The poets share an engagement with the possibilities of language and form; yet each is unique in the histories and strategies that enrich their craft. Eleven exciting new voices establish their presence here, making new the tongue and art they have inherited.
Awards won by Michael Schmidt Winner, 2016 Forward Prize for Best Single Poem - Sasha Dugdale's 'Joy', published in PN Review 227 (PN Review 227 )
