The Next Wave

An Anthology of 21st Century Canadian Poetry

Mercurial and modern, The Next Wave is an output-based anthology of 21st century Canadian poetry. Curated by Jim Johnstone, it features 40 early-to-mid-career Canadian writers selected from a diverse range of national and international presses. While The Next Wave surveys poets from across Canada, its contributors are the product of a global mindset—a distinct generation of writers characterized by the variety of their formal and aesthetic choices. Gathered into an anthology that is pertinent as well as predictive, each of the poets in The Next Wave is proof of a re-invigorated national literature. The Next Wave contains over 150 poems from writers who have published exclusively in the new century.
