The Salt Modern Poets series was launched in 1999, and is home to some of the world’s foremost contemporary writers from around the English-speaking world.
In the two decades since our launch, we have published over 430 new collections of poetry and, in 2018, have relaunched our list and expanded our commissioning of single author collections. We have now reopened unsolicited British submissions, as we develop this important part of our publishing heritage, and we are especially keen to support debut writers.
Below are recent additions to the series, but you can discover all Salt's poetry titles in our complete catalogue. We hope you find something to buy, read, treasure and share.
