Eyewear Is Pulling Its 100 Best Living British Poets Feature

After some reflection, I think listing "100 living poets" as the best is currently unhelpful.  There are arguably more than one hundred British poets, born since 1993 (as a benchmark), worth reading, and being concerned about.  However, Eyewear stands by its original list, such as it was shaping up to be, and will begin converting these over to the new label: THE EYEWEAR CANON.  The Eyewear Canon will be a celebration of the very best living contemporary poets resident in Great Britain, as of 2013.
