REVIEWS

 

"The five young poets of the anthology Rising Stars are also slam-seasoned, pared back to assured, mature, charismatic essentials."

Imogen Russell Williams - Times Literary Supplement

____________________________

"This collection takes risks and excitingly pulls it off with real zing. A sharp, crisp 21st century anthology that breaks down barriers about what poetry can be and poets can do, this is a collection to have in your back pocket."

Playing by the Book

____________________________

"As well as the freshness of new voices, what characterises all these poets' work is the skill with which they work with complex ideas using apparently simple devices and forms. Listen out for them all in the future!"
