Carcanet Press is our most courageous publisher. When you look at what they have brought out since their beginnings, it makes so many other houses seem timid or merely predictable.

Verve's very first Poet of the Festival is Sumita Chakraborty, a Forward-shortlisted poet and recipient of a Ruth Lilley and Dorothy Sargent Fellowship from the Poetry Foundation, who visits us from the US.
