Wave Hub
New poetry from Cornwall


Edited by Alan M. Kent

ISBN 978 1 903427 99 6
280 pages paperback

Cornwall is at the hub of the Celtic Sea, and this collection of new poetry celebrates the best verse to emerge from there in recent times.

Diverse in their identities and the forms in which they write, all the poets represented have a lasting relationship with the territory and its people. Some names will be familiar but equally a new generation of writers has been assembled alongside these more established voices. All of them celebrate the poetic energy emerging out of this land at the hub of the waves. The collection shows a renewed confidence in Cornwall's literary prowess as well as an engagement with the wider world.

Alan M. Kent is a celebrated Cornish academic, poet, playwright and novelist. He is the editor of Voices from West Barbary: An Anthology of Anglo-Cornish Poetry 1549–1928 (2000) and The Dreamt Sea: An Anthology of Anglo-Cornish Poetry 1928–2004 (2004). His selected poems The Hope of Place was published in 2010.
