Synopsis: “The books in the Wick Poetry Series present exciting writing by new and emerging poets. Diverse, surprising, and politically and emotionally charged, this series has published some of the best new poetry being written, chosen by many of our most beloved and respected poets. The Next of Us Is About to Be Born is a valuable addition to the landscape of contemporary poetry.”―Harvey Hix, Finalist for the 2006 National Book Award in Poetry for CHROMATIC

The Next of Us Is About to Be Born is an anthology of fifty-five poets published in the Wick Poetry Series celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Wick Poetry Center at Kent State University. Designed to be an eclectic grouping, the anthology illustrates the exciting new directions poets have been taking from the early 1990s to the present, in keeping with the Wick Poetry Center’s mission of encouraging new voices.

Since 1992 the Wick Poetry Series has published first books of poems by many of the country’s best young and emerging poets, including Victoria Redel, Richard Tayson, Honoree Fannone Jeffers, Kate Northrop, Lee Peterson, and others. The Stan and Tom Wick Poetry Prize is offered annually and judged by well-known poets, including Gerald Stern, Lucille Clifton, Marilyn Hacker, Li-Young Lee, Philip Levine, Yusef Komunyakaa, and C. K. Williams. The Wick Center also sponsors a series of chapbooks by Ohio poets selected through two competitions―one for students enrolled in Ohio colleges and universities and one for any poet living in Ohio. This series, edited by Maggie Anderson, has published early work by many poets now publishing their second and third books, such as Thomas Sayers Ellis, Jeanne Bryner, Diane Gilliam, Joe Bonomo, Matthew Cooperman, and Mary Ann Samyn.

Including two to three poems by each poet, the range of form and subject matter of The Next of Us Is About to Be Born is varied and far-ranging. Since some of the poets were still in undergraduate or graduate programs when these poems were written, the collection makes an excellent text for use in college and university poetry workshops. In addition to the now well-known poets, there are many whose work is just beginning to be published.

About the Author: Maggie Anderson is professor of English at Kent State University and director of the Northeast Ohio MFA program. She also directs the Wick Poetry Center and edits the Wick Poetry Series of the Kent State University Press. She has published Windfall: New and Selected Poems, Cold Comfort, and A Space Filled with Moving and is coeditor of two anthologies, After the Bell: Contemporary American Prose about School and Learning By Heart: Contemporary American Poetry about School.
