The latest anthology in the New Voices from Europe and Beyond series is now out. Edited by Teemu Manninen, Six Finnish Poets features the work of Vesa Haapala, Janne Nummela, Matilda Södergran, Henriikka Tavi, Juhana Vähänen and Katariina Vuorinen with translations from Lola Rogers, Emily Jeremiah and Helen R. Boultrum.

These poets offer a refreshing mix of narrative, cinematic and experimental devices, ranging from science fiction to punk to whimsical subject matters. Several of the poets in this anthology collaborate with other artists and this engagement is evident as the poems speak to each other across the collection.

The New Voices from Europe and Beyond is a co-operation between Arc publications and Literature Across Frontiers and the new anthology is the eleventh in the series following on from recent focuses on Catalan and Armenian poetry. Read more about the complete series here.
