Primers: Volume Five
In 2019, Nine Arches Press launched their nationwide Primers scheme for a fifth time, in search of exciting and emerging talent in contemporary poetry, with Jacqueline Saphra and Jane Commane as selecting editors. After reading through hundreds of anonymous entries, and narrowing down the choices from longlist to shortlist, three poets emerged as clear choices: Krystelle Bamford, Claire Cox and Hannah Jane Walker.
Primers: Volume Five now collects together a showcase from each of the three poets. A vivid, adventurous and distinctive selection of new work from some of poetry’s most talented emerging voices.
