Launched at the London Literature Festival in October 2017, Ten: Poets of the New Generation, published by Bloodaxe Books, was described as ‘a showcase of ten of the most internationally in-demand Black and Asian poets in the UK’.
Ian Humphreys is one of ten poets featured in the anthology, each of whom introduces readers to their work through a 12-page portfolio.
Ian has an enviable gift of finding final lines of poems, many of which are seared on the surface of my memory.

There is a transformative and mesmeric quality to his writing that draws the reader centre-stage.
