Introduction X: The Poetry Business Book of New Ports

£10.00

INTRODUCTION X = 100 + OF THE BEST POEMS BY 40 + NEW POETS

Introduction X is a gathering of outstanding poets at an early stage in their writing careers. Apart from this ‘newness’, and talent, and what W S Graham would call ‘the rarer gift of application’, what these writers happen to have in common is that at some point The Poetry Business has been fortunate enough to encounter them – either through residential courses, The New Poets Prize, or workshops and mentoring schemes, such as The Writing Squad.

Working with young writers always inspires and humbles me. The work in this anthology shows why. These are poems of urgency, wit and depth, from the surreal, haunting lyricism of Ian Burnette to the arch, precise observations of Sarah Fletcher. – Helen Mort
