Primers Vol. 1
Published by Nine Arches Press
In 2015, The Poetry School and Nine Arches Press ran a nationwide scheme to find exciting new voices in poetry with Kathryn Maris as selecting editor.
After reading through hundreds of entries, and narrowing down the choices from longlist to shortlist, four previously unpublished poets, Geraldine Clarkson, Lucy Ingram, Maureen Cullen and Katie Griffiths emerged as the clear winners.
Primers Vol.1 now collects together these four selected poets, and the brilliant chemistry of their poems, a heady mix and a memorable trip – from war correspondents to social work, breath-taking natural landscapes to strange, unsettling tales - there’s much here to delight and quietly dazzle, and much to make the future of poetry bright.
