A Few Red Poets

Red Poets at Blackwood

Red Poets is a loose collective of poets from the Left in Wales with different yet similar views, who co-operate and create. Under the co-editorship of Mike Jenkins and Marc Jones, an annual anthology has been produced for more than twenty years. Find out more from the Red Poets website, or its presence on Facebook.

Featured here are some of the poets who have featured in the anthologies. The selection does not try to pretend to be a 'representative sample'. This would be very difficult to achieve anyway. A large number of poets, well known and less well known, have appeared over the years. Who to pick? There is also an associated links page called Pinkolinks. You might (or might not!) find this to be of interest.
