In 2019, Nine Arches Press launched their nationwide Primers
scheme for a fourth time, in search of exciting new voices in poetry, with Jacqueline
Saphra and Jane Commane as selecting editors. After reading through hundreds of
anonymous entries, and narrowing down the choices from longlist to shortlist,
three poets emerged as clear choices.
Primers: Volume Five now collects together a showcase from
each of the three new poets. A vivid, adventurous and distinctive selection of
new work from some of poetry’s most talented emerging voices.
