After the success of HEAD LAND last year, Edge Hill University Press, in partnership with Arc Publications, has published its second title, Atlantic Drift: An Anthology of Poetry & Poetics. This book is edited by Dr James Byrne and Emeritus Professor Robert Sheppard.


Atlantic Drift publishes 24 poets from the UK, Ireland, USA and Canada in partnership with Arc Publications. This anthology seeks to highlight new and existing writing and to define/redefine the discussions between poets from both sides of ‘the pond’. By developing a dialogue between English-speaking traditions.

Fresh from launching at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, the next launch event of Atlantic Drift will be at Edge Hill University, in the Arts Centre on November 23rd at 7.30. Tickets are free but booking is required. For further details click on this link .
