Ten: poets of the new generation presents the work of ten exciting British poets from diverse backgrounds. It is the third anthology from The Complete Works poetry mentoring scheme, a national programme supporting exceptional black and Asian poets founded by the writer Bernardine Evaristo in 2007. Already making a big impact on the British poetry scene, poets from the series have included Sarah Howe, the 2016 winner of both the T.S. Eliot Prize and the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award; Mona Arshi, winner of the Forward Prize for Best First Collection 2016; and Warsan Shire, who collaborated with Beyonce on her visual album, Lemonade, in 2016, which featured many of Shire's poems. This latest anthology in the Ten series will not disappoint readers hoping to discover more exceptional talent. It includes poets with even more diverse backgrounds ranging from Somalia and Nigeria through to Jamaica and the multiculturalism of Macau, and features the first poet from Latin America. These are poets who interrogate race and explode any ideas of a page/stage divide. Fierce, unexpected, sometimes beautiful and always passionate, here are ten poets to savour and enjoy. The poets included are: Raymond Antrobus, Natacha Bryan, Leonardo Boix, Victoria Adukwei Bulley, Will Harris, Ian Humphreys, Jennifer Lee Tsai, Momtaza Mehri, Yomi Sode and Degna Stone. The Complete Works III is directed by Dr Nathalie Teitler, with thanks to Arts Council England for their generous funding. Copublication with The Complete Works.

Review:

If first collections seem too risky for gift-giving, play it safe with an anthology.... why not tryTen: Poets of the New Generation?... an anthology of work by black and ethnic minority poets. --Tristram Fane Saunders, The Daily Telegraph (Poetry Books of the Year)

Recent British poetry has been transformed by The Complete Works (TCW). Now based at Roehampton Poetry Centre, this project has seen the number of books by black and minority ethnicity poets published by major UK presses go from under 1 per cent to 14 per cent within 10 years. As TCW founder-director Nathalie Teitler says, "behind closed doors many editors and critics reveal that they're not sure how to engage with these new aesthetics". --Fiona Sampson, The i Paper

About the Author:

Karen McCarthy Woolf was born in London to English and Jamaican parents. She has been awarded residencies at the literary development agency Spread the Word, the City of El Gouna, Egypt and at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich in 2015 where she responded to an exhibit on migration. Having read at a wide variety of national and international venues and festivals, including Cheltenham, Aldeburgh, Ledbury, the Royal Festival Hall, Barbican Centre, V&A, Tate Modern and Science Museum in the UK, as well as in the US, Singapore, Sweden and the Caribbean, she is known as a compelling presenter of her work. Karen has an active interest in cross-platform collaboration: her writing has been commissioned as an installation, selected for Poems on the Underground, produced as a poetry/choreography film and dropped from a helicopter over the Houses of Parliament by the Chilean arts collective Casagrande. The recipient of an Arts Council England Award, the Kate Betts Memorial Prize and an AHRC scholarship at Royal Holloway, The University of London, she is researching hybridity in poetry and how this informs ways in which we might write about nature, the city and the sacred. Her poems are translated into Spanish and most recently Swedish, as part of the European poetry initiative Versopolis. Her first book-length collection, An Aviary of Small Birds (Carcanet, 2014), a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, was shortlisted for both the Forward and Aldeburgh Best First Collection Prizes, and selected as a Guardian/Observer book of the month by Kate Kellaway, who described it as a 'beautiful, painful, pitch-perfect debut'. Her second collection, Seasonal Disturbances, was published by Carcanet in 2017. Karen has been in publishing from the age of 17 and in 1997 edited the critically acclaimed anthology Bittersweet which was described in the Independent on Sunday as a 'publication of tremendous depth'. She is on the board of two literary journals, Poetry London and Wasafiri, was a selector for the Faber New Poets scheme and has worked with a variety of agencies including The Photographers' Gallery, British Council, The Poetry School, Southbank Centre, English PEN, Museum of Garden History and the Arvon Foundation. Karen is a fellow of The Complete Works, a nationwide professional development programme committed to creating more cultural diversity in mainstream poetry publishing, was included in its associated anthology, Ten: New Poets from Spread the Word (2010), and went on to edit the subsequent anthologies, Ten: The New Wave (2014) and Ten: Poets of the New Generation (2017), all from Bloodaxe.
