Product description


I'll also be reading the exciting, eclectic anthology Ten: the new wave, which showcases work by some of the best young British black and Asian poets writing today. It's full of fantastic poems from (among others) Sarah Howe, Warsan Shire, Kayo Chingonyi and Mona Arshi, and will leave you feeling joyful about the future of poetry. --Liz Berry, Guardian(Summer Books 2015)

...a sampler of work by black minority ethnic poets that includes some of the best new verse to be found anywhere. --Fiona Sampson, Independent

These ten exciting poets record with confidence and vigour a tune rarely heard on these shores and this collection of their work is a boost to the body of contemporary British poetry. --Carol Ann Duffy
