Here’s news of a US-based anthology of ‘young and emerging’ poets. They’re still compiling, if I’m reading this aright, and it looks as though it does not exclude non-USAmericans. All sounds good.
One of the editors is John Sakkis, a (not just) jazz-loving poet, which has to be a good thing.
Chris Murray drew this to my attention with some funny remarks about the ‘emerging’ thing.
It’s always going to be a point of contention - or worry. I recall a writer (a well-known playwright in this particular case) who said she really felt she was submerging. Maybe. I realise I’ve missed the ‘emerging’ boat because I wasn’t young when I began this poetry lark. As I’ve not really officially 'emerged', I shimmy around my own little piece of limbo-land. It’s not so bad. And who needs permission anyway - to emerge, re-merge, subside, roll along?
