"Provocative, surprising and diverse, these are gifted new writers whose work will be read widely in years to come." 
-- John Boyne

"These are poems that look dangerous on the page. They travel a lot – often without the safety of a compass – and they frequently find their way into territory where a moment ofchange seems surprising and sudden and inevitable. That’s to say, these poems like to keep company with truth and risk and transformation.  Yet sometimes they also pause in quiet places, where you can almost hear them whispering about beauty."
-- Bill Manhire, UNESCO City of Literature Visiting Professor, 2015

‘”All good writing,” said Walter Benjamin, “either dissolves a genre or invents one.” Creative Non-Fiction is a genre in a continual state of dissolution or reinvention, and the UEA classof 2015 have proved themselves fearless pioneers of this uncharted terrain. I have no doubt that these are voices which will grow and grow, that we will read these writers again.’ 
-- Frances Wilson

"The scriptwriting course encourages writers to experiment and to find their individual style and voice. This anthology is a testament to that, offering a mix of bawdy comedies and dramas that are as imaginative as they are lyrical and poignant."
-- Janice Okoh - Playwright

Falseweed by Bill Manhire


Falseweed Front Cover

"The poem started as a light teasing of the "name-the-weeds-and-herbs" poems of the last 30 odd years: the sort of thing you get in writers like Jen Hadfield or Robert Hass or Alice Oswald. But it turned into a piece about ageing and writer's block."
-- Bill Manhire

"An impressive showcase of verve and talent. Ranging from a South African game reserve to a bare-knuckle boxing ring in Brighton; spanning the eighteenth century and an eerie dystopia, these tales of violence, loss, and dubious meat are a taste of the literary future."
-- Sam Byers, 2014

"These poems are smart, beautiful, instantly engaging but endlessly renumerating and this anthology should serve as the starting point for some wild new poetic ascensions."
-- Luke Kennard, 2014

"What better time than now to challenge the staid hegemony of fiction, and who better to do it - as this book will show - than the stylish and accomplished students of non-fiction writing at the University of East Anglia?"
-- Amit Chaudhuri Professor of Contemporary Literature, UEA

"What UEA's Scriptwriting course has done marvellously is to equip students with practical working tools and storytelling structures that they can choose at will and play with in order to expand their creativity and paint their own unique and distinctive stories."
-- Faith Ng, Playwright
