DISCOVER OUR FIRST CURATED SELECTION OF POETRY TITLES
Having a tough year? Anxieties are balanced by humanism in this introductory selection of titles, selected by TS Eliot Award-shortlisted poet and publisher, Anthony Anaxagorou. Encompassing full collections and pamphlets from exciting new voices, these books offer a diverse insight into contemporary UK poetries.
"This assortment of contemporary poetic voices speaks to a cultural and global malaise, encumbered by the strains and anxieties felt by many of us. I’ve loved these books for their ability to make a case not only for social reform but for pathos and humanism."

"At the Poetry Book Society we're continually astounded by the innovative and world-class poetry emerging from the tiniest of independent poetry presses. Despite a global pandemic, indie publishers fearlessly champion ground-breaking new poetry talent, the most diverse and dynamic of voices."
