With the guidance of Helen Bowell, Education Coordinator at The Poetry Society, I approached six young poets from around the world (Nigeria, India, Australia, the US, and the UK) to find out their perspective on the Anthropocene. The result was a fascinating roundtable discussion, full of passion and insight on what it means to be a young person writing today and what role poetry might have in re-imagining the Earth’s future. I am so grateful to the poets for taking part and deeply indebted to Helen and the Young Poets Network* fo r he l p i ng to sh i ne a l i ght on t hese important voices. – Cheryl Moskowitz
