There’s going to be a short break while I catch up on a long list of unfinished tasks. More poems will be posted in April, so not long to wait. In the meantime, do browse through the many, many poems on this site. Here are just a few that you might enjoy:
‘Half the Story’ by Ian Duhig - a poem from his eagerly awaited new collection, coming soon from Picador.
Two poems by Anja Konig from her pamphlet ‘Advice for an Only Child’ – selected by the Poetry Book Society as a recent Pamphlet Choice.
Two poems by Rebecca Goss – Rebecca was named in 2014 as one of the Next Generation Poets.
Two poems by Mona Arshi – Mona was a joint winner of the Manchester Poetry Prize in 2014 and has a debut collection forthcoming from Pavillion Poetry.
Three poems by Carrie Etter. Carrie has been shortlisted for this year’s Ted Hughes Prize for New Work in Poetry and is one of the judges for this year’s Forward Prize.
‘How I Abandoned My Body To His Keeping’ by Kim Moore. A poem from Kim’s forthcoming debut collection from Seren. Since I posted it on March 8th, this sestina has been shared over 500 times on Twitter and Facebook.
‘March’ by Boris Pasternak translated by Sasha Dugdale. I’m always delighted to be able to feature hard-working editors on this site. Modern Poetry in Translation editor Sasha has also given us Pasternak’s ‘February’ but I’ll leave you to find that one for yourself.
Enjoy the poems and see you in April.
