How to Write is the latest title from #Merky Books, the home for a new generation of voices curated by Stormzy. It’s a masterclass in the craft of writing from one of Britain’s most celebrated poets and educators, T.S. Eliot Prize nominee Anthony Anaxagorou.
Taking us on a personal journey through his early life and school years, through to his relationship with literature, education poetry and writing, Anthony’s book is filled with tips, anecdotes and publishing advice for anyone interested in getting their work seen. From Anthony’s first slam win to the evolving British poetry scene, this book will provoke readers into thinking about their writing more carefully – be it a rap, poem, short story or novel – and help them finally get their book out into the world. Join us if you’re interested in taking your writing to the next level.
