has me included, well, a poem of mine. Which I am very happy about.
Campaign in Poetry is a powerful anthology about political and social issues in the UK, with poems written by contemporary poets in the months leading up to the UK General Election. The poems reflect current concerns and developing events in this country as well as more global trends, including nationalism, climate change, immigration, political apathy amongst voters and arts funding. This anthology is a statement against disaffection, providing a fresh perspective on the political landscape of the UK.
Edited by Rachel Piercey and Emma Wright, illustrated by Emma Wright, with poems from Stephanie Arsoska, Elizabeth Barrett, Kayo Chingonyi, Ellie Danak, Dai George, Jan Heritage, Holly Hopkins, Luke Kennard, Anna Kisby, Rachel Long, Rosie Miles, Mona Arshi, Richard O’Brien, Clare Pollard, Ewan Stevenson, Jon Stone, James Trevelyan and Kate Wise.
