The Forward Book of Poetry 2018 showcases a selection of the best contemporary poetry published in the British Isles over the last year, including the 15 shortlisted and 50 highly commended poets from the Forward Prizes for Poetry. It is introduced by Andrew Marr, chairman of the Forward Prizes judges. Their final recommendations give a strong sense of the variety, vitality and wit of poetry today, making this anthology – the 26th – valuable to both first-time poetry readers and those keen to find more new poetry to enjoy.

The Forward anthologies are published annually by our sponsors and supporters Bookmark.

“These annual anthologies of the poems in the running for the Forward Prizes remain the best way of encountering the richness that new poetry has to offer.”
