Next Generation Poets 2014 announced | 11-Sep-14

The Poetry Book Society has announced the Next Generation Poets 2014, recognising who the judges feel are the 20 most exciting new poets from the UK and Ireland.

You can read the list of 20 poets here:

And the coverage in The Guardian here:

And visit the Next Generation website here:

Emily Berry, Jen Hadfield, Kei Miller and Daljit Nagra all read at the Poetry Library's 60th Birthday Party last year, and Annie Freud was commissioned to write a poem in celebration, so some of these poets are already part of our history.

All of the books the poets have been selected for are available for reference and loan at the Poetry Library.

We look forward to the alternative lists of poets that will be appearing in the coming weeks!
