From the first New Poetries anthology, published in 1994, through to this seventh volume, the series has showcased some of the most engaging and inventive new poets writing in English from around the world. Many have gone on to achieve notable success: Kei Miller, Sinéad Morrissey, Caroline Bird, Sophie Hannah, Tara Bergin and Vahni Capildeo among them.
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’. Many of the poets in the anthology have arrived via the pages of PN Review.
FEATURING Luke Allan, Zohar Atkins, Rowland Bagnall, Sumita Chakraborty, Mary Jean Chan, Helen Charman, Rebecca Cullen, Ned Denny, Neil Fleming , Isabel Galleymore, Katherine Horrex, Lisa Kelly, Theophilus Kwek, Andrew Latimer, Toby Litt, Rachel Mann, James Leo McAskill, Jamie Osborn, Andrew Wynn Owen, Phoebe Power, Laura Scott, and Vala Thorodds.
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 )
