Faced with social injustice, disillusionment with authority and widespread voter apathy, where can we turn to put the fight back in us? The poets, of course! We decided to create this book because were were thinking about how easy it is to stop caring about politics, because the mechanics of national and international politics seem too far removed from what any ordinary person can influence.
This anthology is a statement against disaffection, and would be great for anyone interested in modern political poetry and a nuanced yet impassioned perspective on the political landscape of the UK.
With poems from Mona Arshi, Stephanie Arsoska, Elizabeth Barrett, Kayo Chingonyi, Ellie Danak, Dai George, Jan Heritage, Holly Hopkins, Luke Kennard, Anna Kisby, Rachel Long, Rosie Miles, Richard O’Brien, Clare Pollard, Ewan Stevenson, Jon Stone, James Trevelyan and Kate Wise.
