‘Dear World & Everyone In It’ is a new poetry anthology representing the work of over sixty young poets currently writing in the UK. It is edited by Nathan Hamilton, who previously curated a series of young poet features for The Rialto, and is published by Bloodaxe this month with a launch event at The Poetry Library at the Royal Festival Hall in London on 24 January. Nathan (pictured) graduated from UEA’s English and American Literature BA in 2004, and completed the Creative Writing MA (Poetry) in 2005. He is currently undertaking a PhD in Creative and Critical Writing at UEA under the supervision of Jeremy Noel-Tod. He runs Egg Box Publishing and is chairman of the board of Inpress, representing over forty independent publishers. His poetry and criticism have appeared in The Guardian, The Spectator, The Rialto, Five Dials, The Manhattan Review and The Wolf, among others, and he co-edits the ‘antholog-zine’ series for emerging poetry, ‘Stop Sharpening Your Knives’. ‘Dear World & Everyone In It’ includes new work by poets as diverse as Ben Borek, Tim Cockburn, Amy De’Ath, Jim Goar, Meiron Jordan, Katharine Kilalea, Luke Kennard, Agnes Lehoczky, Sandeep Parmar, Sam Riviere, Angus Sinclair, Emily Toder, Jack Underwood and Tom Warner, among many others.
