Futures: Poetry of the Greek Crisis

Futures: Poetry of the Greek Crisis is a timely and powerful new anthology in English offering "a poetic reply to the social and economic disaster which still threatens to overturn the whole European project." Edited by Theodoros Chiotis and published by Penned In The Margins, it features some of the most daring new voices in Greek poetry as well as international poets with Greek connections, with work that "explores the gradual, often violent, modification of personal and collective identity in a time of crisis."

I'm very happy to be contributing to Futures with 'Civilisation's Golden Dawn: A Slide Show', taken from my book The Architecture of Chance.

The anthology features poems written directly in English or in translation from the Greek, with the contributors' list including many exceptional poets such as Tom Chivers, Emily Critchley, Katerina Iliopoulou, Sophie Mayer, Eftychia Panagiotou, Eleni Sikelianos, A.E. Stallings, George Ttoouli and Chiotis himself.
