Concepts of belonging and community have constantly evolving definitions, and have been at the centre of fierce debate in recent years. The first twenty-three years of the new millennium have seen a rise in rhetoric aimed at those without the voice to argue back, and waves of toxic abuse have proliferated – and genocide. How relevant, then, to unite and raise our voices, to celebrate the rich tapestry of humanity, and to explore the labels we use to identify and express ourselves.

Kinship is a poetry anthology that seeks to provide a platform for marginalised voices, and to celebrate the great diversity and rich variation in the identities of people from around the world and from a huge cross-section of walks of life.

Earl, Alyson Smith, Anne Marie Wells, Bek King, Benedict Hangiriza, Caoimhe Matthews, Caroline Bracken, Catherine Edmunds, Connor Johnston, Daphne Sampson, Deborah Gaudin, Dianne McPhelim, Elizabeth Train-Brown, Ellie Herda-Grimwood, Erin Gannon, Fedora Mensah, Ginger, Ilisha Thiru Purcell, Inga Piotrowska, Ivy Raff, Jayant Kashyap, Jazz McCoull, Jean Gillespie, Jessie Lee, Junyi Chew, Kay Saunders, M.A. Dubbs, Mariyam Karolia, Mea Andrews, Michèle Clement, Naoise Gale, Naomi Dean, Niam Moore, Oz Hardwick, Renee Emerson, Roisin Harkin, Rosalie Alston, Rush Day, Sam Szanto, Srishti Jain, Steve Baggs, Steve Denehan, Stuart Wrigley, Thea Smiley, Tom Chachewitz, Utsuk Upreti and Vijaya Venkatesan.
