#3PoetryAnthology is published to coincide with, and celebrate, the 5th anniversary of Vanguard Editions, a self-funded, not-for-profit press, operating since 2014 without grants, institutional support, personal wealth, or a business development plan. This anthology completes a triptych of poetry anthologies started in 2014, which sought to gather together some of the best new and established voices in the contemporary UK poetry scene. There are no themes to these anthologies; they are meant to act like exhibition catalogues, a showcase for the work itself without editorial filters.
Exclusive to #3PoetryAnthology are no fewer than 20 previously unpublished pieces, including brand new work from David Harsent, Toby Martinez de las Rivas & Richard Scott. Thank you to all the contributors for creating this fabulous cross section of such extraordinary work.
Finally, I’m included work by two fine poets—Mary MacRae and John Riley—whose lives were cruelly cut short. Their two poems—‘Song’ and ‘Poem’ respectively—are amongst their finest and amongst the finest I have ever read. It’s a joy to be able to include them.
pp.63 / £6 incl. p&p (please add £4 for outside the UK)
