  • 2018 BEST NEW BRITISH & IRISH POETS ANTHOLOGY NOW OPEN FOR ENTRIES!

    The 2018 Best New British and Irish Poets anthology is now open for entries.

    Even if you have entered before, you are still eligible to enter, so long as you have yet to sign a contract for a debut full collection. While we at Eyewear hope you have signed such a contract, we are happy to encourage you to enter for an appearance in this important anthology series before you have.

    Every year sees a different judge, and therefore, a various poetic set of tastes, so do consider entering this year as well. Our judge this year is the superb American poet Maggie Smith. Her poem 'Good Bones' became the most-read of 2016 and a global phenomenon.

     CLOSES DECEMBER 31ST 2017!

  • MAJOR US POET KIMIKO HAHN TO JUDGE THE 2017 SEXTON PRIZE

    EYWEAR PUBLISHING believes it is vital to keep the progressive, and creative, lines of artistic communication (and publication) open between the UK and the USA, especially at times like these.

    AS SUCH we are thrilled to be able to today announce that this year's FINAL JUDGE for the prestigious SEXTON PRIZE for an American poetry manuscript is KIMIKO HAHN.

    Kimiko Hahn is the author of nine books of poems, including: Brain Fever (W.W. Norton, 2014) and Toxic Flora (WWN, 2010), both collections inspired by science; The Narrow Road to the Interior (WWN, 2006) a collection that takes its title from Basho’s famous poetic journal; The Unbearable Heart (Kaya, 1996), which received an American Book Award; Earshot (Hanging Loose Press, 1992), which was awarded the Theodore Roethke Memorial Poetry Prize and an Association of Asian American Studies Literature Award. Hahn takes pleasure in the challenges of collaboration, most recently with Lauren Henkin’s photographic series. Honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship, PEN/Voelcker Award, Shelley Memorial Prize, a Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Writers' Award as well as fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. She is a distinguished professor in the MFA Program in Creative Writing & Literary Translation at Queens College, The City University of New York.
