Sam Meekings has been included in the new anthology from Bloodaxe Books, Identity Parade, that presents the best new British and Irish poets from the last 15 years.
Identity Parade is the first anthology to comprehensively represent the generation of poets who have emerged since the mid-1990s.
Identity Parade is as accessible to the new reader as to the aficionado, with each poet introduced by a biographical note also covering their themes and concerns, plus an author photograph. This is the essential starting place for anyone interested in the poetry of here and now.
Sam Meekings also wrote a series of poems for Booklight.
A select group of exciting poets reflect upon dynamic images captured by Scottish photographer Thomas Haywood. Chinese lanterns, bright butterflies, the Glasgow Necropolis, Blackpool lights, and Autralian caves lend themselves to a poetic conversation.
