Product description

Review

Full of things to divert, entertain and provoke. - The Independent 50 Best Summer Reads Adventures in Form teems with life. It is the start of a new, healthier and more joyous way of looking at the poetic endeavour we live among. It's essential reading right now.
- Poetry Review

The constraints we chafe against in the creation of 'txt msg poMs' may be unravelling, but the anthology's long-term legacy will be its sense of gusto. Look at this as a pattern book of the possible; it enthuses, and that enthusiasm becomes contagious.
- Poetry London

Adventures in Form raises fundamental questions, about the value of novelty to poetry, for example, about chance and choice, sense and nonsense, and about the concept of 'voice', in poetry, how it might be revitalised, channelled and challenged.
- Poetry Book Society

One of the most eye-opening books of the decade. --Eyewear
