Please join us to celebrate the launch of New Poetries VIII, edited by Michael Schmidt and John McAuliffe. From the first New Poetries anthology, published in 1994, through to this eighth 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.
New Poetries VIII showcases the work of some of the most exciting new poets writing in English. With poets from the UK, USA, Ireland, Scandinavia, Afghanistan and more, the book introduces important new voices from BAME and LGBTQ communities, ranging in age from 20 to 80 years old.
Five launch events will run each Thursday evening between February 18th – March 18th. Each event will include readings and discussion. During the readings we will show the text on screen so that you can read along. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask their own questions. Please follow the links below to book for each event individually.
