The Salt Book of Younger Poets showcases a new generation of British poets born since the mid-80s.

Some poets here were winners of the Foyle young poet awards when at school. Some have published pamphlets in series like Tall-Lighthouse's Pilot and Faber's New Poets. All of them are working on first collections. This is a chance to encounter poets who will dominate UK poetry in years to come.
