Introduced by George Szirtes, this anthology brings together the work of 10 new poetry talents from the University of East Anglia’s world-renowned Creative Writing programme. UEA has produced numerous successful and prize-winning alumni, including Sam Riviere, Agnes Lehoczky, Kate Kilalea, Adam Foulds, Kathryn Simmonds, Sebastian Barker and Owen Sheers.
“What emerges is not only a sense of exciting individual talents mining and developing their own gifts, but also a renewed conviction that the art of poetry is not just alive and well in Britain today, but ready to go out there and rattle a few cages.”
– John Burnside
“This is a bold, diverse enjoyable selection of poems. The authors would rather take a risk than play it safe. Good for them”
– Sean O’Brien
