This book is a masterclass in the craft of writing and poetry from one of Britain’s most celebrated poets and educators, T.S. Eliot Prize nominee Anthony Anaxagorou.
Taking readers on a personal journey through his early life and school years, through to his relationship with literature, education poetry and writing, this book is filled with tips, anecdotes and publishing advice for anyone interested in getting their work seen. From Anthony’s first slam win to the evolving British poetry scene, this book will provoke readers into thinking about their writing more carefully – be it a poem, short story or novel – and help them finally get their book out into the world.
Anthony appeared at the first two Verve Festivals, performing at and producing the wonderful OutSpoken Press Showcase event and delivering workshops on both occasions. Then at the 2019 festival he delivered our inaugural Verve Performance Lecture to a full house and donated a poem to Verve Poetry Press’s Anthology Eighty-Four in aid of CALM’s attempts to reduce male suicide in the UK. Needless to say, we’re MASSIVE fans!
