Summary

After Sylvia is an anthology of new writing celebrating the work and legacy of Sylvia Plath. Published by Nine Arches Press in October 2022, the book honours the 90th anniversary of Plath's birth through a range of compelling poems and thought-provoking essays by leading and up-and-coming poets and scholars from the UK and beyond.
After Sylvia is shaped around five inspiring chapters, each exploring a key Plathian theme: Nature, Rebirth, Womanhood, Mothers & Fathers and Magic. Co-edited by Ian Humphreys and Sarah Corbett, contributors include Mona Arshi, Emily Berry, Mary Jean Chan, Heather Clark, Pascale Petit and Jacob Polley.
This vital anthology sets out to help dispel the myth of Sylvia Plath as tortured genius destined to her fate, by expressing the power and complexity of her work, legacy and reputation as one of the most important and influential writers of the 20th century.

    An anthology of essays and poetry exploring the Motor City’s hidden corners—from the people who live and work there. It seems like everybody in Detroit thinks they know the city’s neighborhoods, but because there are so many, their characteristics often become muddled and the stories that define them are often lost. Edited by Aaron Foley—author of How to Live in Detroit Without Being a Jackass—this intimate and wide-ranging collection offers revealing perspectives on a city that many people think they have figured out.  A homegrown portrait about the lesser-known parts of the city, The Detroit Neighborhood Guidebook showcases the voices and people who make up Cass Corridor, West Village, Minock Park, Warrendale, Hamtramck, and almost every other spot in the city. Contributors include Zoe Villegas, Drew Philip, Hakeem Weatherspoon, Marsha Music, Ian Thibodeau, and dozens of others.

    Common Place explores the stories of shifting, resilient bodies and landscapes bound by systems of capital and power. From thin threads of text messages across borders to encounters with strangers in the crush of rush-hour transit, Sarah Pinder names our most private and public moments of seeing and being seen. With considered, quiet urgency, this poem witnesses our ambiguous, aching present and looks towards what comes next.
    
     
    ‘Watch for theplaces where Pinder goes for the imperative: like the book as a whole, these commands are generous, beautiful, and difficult lifelines thrown from a fellow survivor of the present.’
    
     
    – Jennifer Nelson, author of Aim at the Centaur Stealing Your Wife
    
     
    ‘Common Place feels like the logbook of a survivor, one that shows how the intimate and the idiosyncratic persist within the post-capitalist technosphere. A tatteredrecord keeping, Common Place is friend of the abject landscape, “home of the lesser, lowercase subject.�* Grasp its compassionate disposition, and this fragmentary poem reveals the affective centre of its ingeniously dissociative fabric.’
    
     
    – Sue Sinclair, author of Heaven’s Thieves
