The Valley Press Anthology of Yorkshire Poetry
edited by Miles Salter and Oz Hardwick
The many sides of a remarkable region, captured in verse by some of our greatest contemporary poets.
A 'Recommended Anthology' for National Poetry Day 2017 (details here).
For this landmark anthology, Valley Press asked poets from the UK (and beyond) to consider our home county of Yorkshire. The resulting collection, edited by VP authors Miles Salter and Oz Hardwick, pays tribute to the traditions that have made Yorkshire a world-famous destination, but looks beyond ‘flat caps and whippets’ to celebrate a thoroughly modern county, whose inhabitants are as diverse as the rural and urban landscapes they call home.
