#UntitledThree: Neu! Reekie!
Edited by Michael Pedersen; Edited by Kevin Williamson
A follow up to the immensely popular #UntitledOne and #UntitledTwo. This year’s anthology gives us more of the promising and established names in British poetry who have all shared the Neu! Reekie! bill.
Many of the works are new, many are favourites read at the events; all are savoured, sublime, sumptuous voices within poetry already.
