Nascent is a new poetry anthology from Out-Spoken Press showcasing four young, up and coming BAME poets. The book features poems by Jess Rahman-González, Mukahang Limbu, Tice Cin, and Maria-Sophia Christodoulou. The editors aimed to highlight young poets from underrepresented backgrounds in this anthology. Editor Anthony Anaxagorou says: "The poems in Nascent circumnavigate what it means to be young, to feel at times both present and absent in an ever-changing world. They grapple with issues which have had to be encountered way too early in life, and they do so with courage, sophistication and invention.' " Jess Rahman-González is a queer, disabled poet and theatre-maker. They are co-parent of Clumsy Bodies, an LGBTQIA, disabled-led art collective. Jess is currently a member of the Roundhouse Poetry Collective and playwright-in-residence at DYSPLA. Mukahang Limbu is a 17-year-old Nepalese writer based in Oxford.
