For the moments when you need to know that someone else has been there too. An anthology of diverse, fresh, vibrant voices organised by feeling from much-loved journalist Ella Risbridger.

About the Author

Ella Risbridger is a writer and poet. She has written for the Guardian, Prospect, Grazia and Stylist, among others and wrote a column in The Pool called 'My Life in Poems'. Set Me On Fire is her first poetry anthology.


I credit Ella Risbridger with curing me of a deep and lasting suspicion of poetry in general, and contemporary poetry in particular. Readers of a similar disposition should be warned that this collection - broad in scope, generous in spirit and wittily accompanied by Risbridger's commentary - will likely offer a similar cure, while those already in love with the form have new and startling pleasures in store. * Sarah Perry, author of 'The Essex Serpent' *
A new anthology with fortifying intentions . . . offered as an antidote to those who recoil from poetry. To my relief, it is only loosely organised by feelings and brims with familiar and unfamiliar voices: a lucky dip of the best sort. * The Guardian *
I found her enthusiastic explanations and recommendations as fun and refreshing as party-popped fizz. If I wanted to introduce young people to poetry I'd give them this book, which reinforced my conviction that helpful notes offer poetry as a generous gift rather than leaving it on a chilly pedestal. * Daily Mail *
A gorgeous anthology, cleverly curated to convert the cynics, delight the poetically inclined and soothe everyone in between. * Lauren Bravo, author of 'What Would the Spice Girls Do?' *
Whatever your mood - be it hunger, anger or an end of the world kind of despair, Ella has a poem to soothe you. From the greats like Philip Larkin and Sylvia Plath to obscure poets, new poets and all shades of poets in between, to poems about peanut butter and mix-tape, this anthology is as satisfying as a box of Quality Street * Red *
