Stop Sharpening Your Knives 4


The Norwich based poetry collective, Stop Sharpening Your Knives, released their fourth anthology at the start of 2011.

It’s a beautifully produced and fascinating collection featuring 28 poets in total. Particular highlights for me are the pieces from Sam Riviere, Jack Underwood and Matthew Gregory, whose works are visceral, funny and at times downright disturbing.

2011 feels like the beginning of a golden time for British poetry, with a burgeoning scene created by the hard work of poetry collectives including SSYK and Clinic.
