In 2021, Nine Arches Press launched their nationwide Primers scheme for a sixth time, in search of exciting new voices in poetry, with Rishi Dastidar and Jane Commane as selecting editors. After reading through hundreds of anonymous entries, and narrowing down the choices from longlist to shortlist, three poets emerged as clear choices: Kym Deyn, Estelle Price and Fathima Zahra.

Hosted by Rishi Dastidar, this Primers event now brings together a showcase from each of these three poets. Prepare for essential, deeply imaginative and insightful new work from some of poetry’s most talented emerging voices!
