Next Generation poets (2014)
Next Generation poets (2014) are a list of poets named in 2014 by a panel for the Poetry Book Society, which once every ten years selects 20 poets "expected to dominate the poetry landscape of the coming decade". The accolade highlights emerging poets in the UK and Ireland who published a first collection of poetry within the previous decade. The judges who compiled the list were poet and broadcaster Ian McMillan (chair), poet and playwright Caroline Bird; Robert Crawford, from the 1994 New Generation Poets list; poet Clare Pollard; and Paul Farley, one of 2004's Next Generation Poets list.
The Next Generation 2014 list comprises:
- "Next Generation Poets 2014", Poetry Book Society.
- Sarah Shaffi, "Twenty 'Next Generation Poets' of the decade named", The Bookseller, 11 September 2014.
