Simon Armitage is one of the most accessible and unstuffy modern poets. He started off in the small press world and is not “poetry royalty”. Inoney Smallhorne cut her teeth with Nottingham’s Mouthy Poets while former Derbyshire Poet Laureate has been published by Five Leaves and Beeston- based Shoestring Press.
