When editors Claire Trévien and Gareth Prior wrote to me asking if I would like to contribute to their forthcoming anthology last July, I was thrilled to submit to such an exciting project. The editors set out with the mission of publishing poetry that offer different perspectives on history than the main stream. I think this is a very important volume, and I thank the editors for putting together this groundbreaking anthology. My poem, “Sarajevo” was published, and I’m grateful to be in the company of many amazing poets (see the full list below).
The anthology features poems by James Brookes, Matt Bryden, Karen Jane Cannon, David Clarke, Ross Cogan, Sasha Dugdale, Martín Espada, Rebecca Goss, Hel Gurney, Linn Hansén, Emily Hasler, Sarah Hesketh, Holly Hopkins, Kirsten Irving, Jemma L. King, Rose Lemberg, Robin Lim, Éireann Lorsung, Hannah Lowe, Susan Mackervoy, Harry Man, Dawn Manning, Richie McCaffery, John McCullough, Michael McKimm, Lynn Pedersen, Shelley Puhak, Lesley Quayle, Lou Sarabadzic, Penelope Shuttle, Maria Stepanova, Chloe Stopa-Hunt, Diana Norma Szokolyai, Rebecca Tamás, Jeffrey Thomson, Jessica Traynor, Tim Wells, Elżbieta Wójcik-Leese, Cecilia Woloch.
On December 3, the anthology launches in London! See http://ctrevien.wix.com/rewiringhistory for more info.
