“The success of the poets who have worked with The Complete Works is phenomenal: a gift to talented writers and a marvellous enrichment of our literary culture.” – Mimi Khalvati, co-founder of The Poetry School

In 2005 literary activist and writer Bernardine Evaristo MBE urged Arts Council England (ACE) to investigate the lack of diversity in British poetry. The resulting report, Free Verse, found that only 1% of the poetry published by major UK presses was by black and Asian poets. In response, Evaristo and ACE set up The Complete Works (TCW), a national programme which selected 10 outstanding black and Asian poets, and offered them mentoring, seminars, literature retreats and publication in a Bloodaxe anthology.

TCW is now in its third round and has nurtured British poets from a wide range of cultural backgrounds including: Somalian, Saudi Arabian, Indian, Chinese, Argentinian, Haitian and Caribbean. Research conducted by its director, Dr Nathalie Teitler, has shown that the level of black and Asian poetry published by major UK presses has increased to almost 10%. A significant amount of this increase is directly related to the publications of the poets who have been part of TCW. And in 2015 two of the world’s biggest poetry prizes, the T.S Eliot Prize and the Forward Prize for First Collection, were won by TCW poets Sarah Howe and Mona Arshi respectively.

This project is supported by the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung and Karl Dietz Verlag, and is contracted to be published by Verso Books. But we need your help!

Rosa Luxemburg (1871–1919) is widely regarded as one of the most creative writers of modern socialism and the foremost female theoretician of European radicalism. Her wide-ranging and incisive works, which include studies on capitalism’s inherent drive for global expansion, the relation between spontaneity and organization, and the inseparability of democracy and socialism, have made her a pole of attraction for theorists and activists around the world. Her fiercely independent intellect and uncompromising defense of human liberty speaks more powerfully to our era than to any other.

The Complete Works of Rosa Luxemburg will make her entire body of work available for the first time. It will contain all of her books, pamphlets, essays, articles, letters and manuscripts, a significant amount of which have never appeared in English. It will also include several thousand pages of writings of hers that have only recently been discovered. All of her previously published work in English will be newly translated from German, Polish, Russian, and Yiddish originals. The Complete Works of Rosa Luxemburg will be published in fourteen volumes, each with comprehensive annotations and introductions.
