  • From the first New Poetries anthology, published in 1994, through to this sixth volume, the series has showcased the work of some of the most engaging and inventive new poets writing in English from around the world, many of whom have subsequently gone on to achieve notable success: Sophie Hannah, Vona Groarke, Patrick McGuinness, Kei Miller, Caroline Bird, David Morley, Jane Yeh, William Letford, Tara Bergin, and many others. Crucially, the New Poetries anthologies have never sought to identify a ‘school’, much less a ‘generation’: the poets included employ a wide range of styles, forms and approaches, and ‘new’ need not be taken to imply ‘young’. Poets include Vahni Capildeo, John Clegg, Joey Connolly, Adam Crothers, Eric Langley, Rebecca Watts, Judith Willson, Alex Wong, and more.
