Praise for John McAuliffe 'A very fulsome, variously enticing and accomplished slice of the poetic milieu.'
Clark Allison, Tears in the Fence
'A selection of poets which has benefitted from the different eyes of the anthology editors Michael Schmidt and John McAuliffe, and all of whom, if we didn't know before, we will know when they make their own indelible mark on poetry in the years to come.'
Andrew McMillan, The Poetry Book Society Spring Bulletin
Praise for Michael Schmidt 'Its pleasures are longer term ones: as you return to it and re-read its substantial selections, you come to appreciate how and what each contributor is working on.'
Jane Routh, The North 66
'...this is the joy of New Poetries VIII: time and again you discover refreshing and compelling new styles and subjects'
