Pavilion Poetry seeks to publish the very best in contemporary poetry. Always international in its reach, Pavilion Poetry is poetry that takes a risk. Whether by new or established and award-winning writers, this is poetry sure to challenge and delight.
2019 marks our fifth year of Pavilion Poetry with three new collections from Mona Arshi, Janette Ayachi, and Lieke Marsman, translated by Sophie Collins. Upcoming readings, workshops, and events with all of our poets can be found below. For other updates from our poets, follow @PavilionPoetry on twitter.

Praise for Pavilion Poetry
'It is a testament to Mona Arshi's talent that, after a decade of not reading any poetry at all, her work had me clambering for old anthologies. Of course, little of what I read afterwards was as elegant, moving, haunting or true. Nothing less than Britain's most promising writer.'
Sathnam Sanghera, The Times
Slant Light 'relates nature to humanity in a way that is new and exciting... I think it is stunning. I'd push this book into the hands of a lot of people and I don't think you have to be very familiar with poetry to enjoy it either.'
Jen Campbell, Costa Poetry Prize Judge
'Ruby Robinson is a real find. Her agile and poised poems play with scale, listen out and in, and crank the gain up on the world. It’s great to discover such an exciting debut.'
Series Editor: Deryn Rees-Jones, University of Liverpool
