Prose includes Kathryn Maris, Vahni Capildeo and David Wheatley on offensiveness, risk and the risqué; Helen Mort on Simon Armitage and John Burnside; Alison Brackenbury on selections by Elaine Feinstein and Shanta Acharya; Jennifer Wong and Charanpreet Khaira on recent debuts; Vidyan Ravinthiran on Gwendolyn Brooks – and Jane Yeh selects the Geoffrey Dearmer Prize winner.
