Vintage Poets

Mon 3 Feb 2020

In the midst of poetry’s much-trumpeted renaissance, Vintage, through its imprints Chatto & Windus and Cape, has been building a formidable list of poets who are pushing the envelope and engaging new readers. 

Beyond audiences, there has been remarkable critical success as well, with two of the last five T.S. Eliot Prize and of the last five Forward Prize winners coming from the Vintage stable – their names, Ocean Vuong, Sarah Howe, Fiona Benson and Danez Smith slipping into conversations across the country. Working in partnership with Brighton Festival for the first time, Vintage presents some of its new stars of the future including Romalyn Ante (pictured) and Seán Hewitt.
