About

The Alchemy Spoon is a platform for poetry without prejudice especially of race, gender or age. We are particularly interested to invite poems from new phase poets. These are poets who have come late to poetry, often following retirement, or a life-change. The work of new phase poets often has stunning depth and perspective reflecting experiences accumulated from work and life. These poets might be classed among those who have been dubbed the 'lost generation of talent'. Abid Hussain, Diversity Director at the AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council), says: ‘How many would-be working-class artists, artistic directors, choreographers, composers and curators decided to enter accounting, legal, medical and engineering professions instead?’ The Alchemy Spoon aims to demonstrate that this talent was not lost but waiting for a reappraisal of priorities, an unleashing of latent creativity, waiting for its time.
