The Valley Press Anthology of Prose Poetry
edited by Anne Caldwell and Oz Hardwick
The best of both worlds; 72 of the UK's leading poets unite to push the boundaries of their craft.
Prose poetry is at the cutting edge of contemporary writing, freeing words from the bounds of traditional poetic grammar and bringing the magic of verse to flash fiction. In this ambitious, ground-breaking anthology, Valley Press showcases new work from a diverse range of UK writers, carefully curated by editors Anne Caldwell and Oz Hardwick.
Featuring bite-sized morsels of original writing from newly-crowned laureate Simon Armitage, Jen Hadfield, Luke Kennard, Helen Mort, George Szirtes, Kim Moore, Inua Ellams, Carrie Etter and a host of other new and established talent, this is the ideal travelling companion for readers searching for a mind-expanding literary adventure.
