Due to staff annual leave we are down one pair of hands until 29th July. Thank you for your patience!


We're so excited to announce our PBS Autumn Selections, which have been chosen by our independent panel of poets including Sinead Morrissey, Ilya Kaminsky, Andrew McMillan, Nick Makoha and Mary Jean Chan. We're delighted to see new voices like Nina Mingya Powles and Rachel Long sitting alongside more established poets like Sean Borodale and David Morley. As well as independent presses such as Nine Arches Press, Shearsman, Broken Sleep Books gaining recognition alongside bigger publishers like Picador and Cape. Congratulations everyone! We can't wait to share these selections with our PBS members in the Autumn mailing in early September.
