TS Eliot Prize shortlist announced | 20-Oct-16

The TS Eliot Foundation has taken over the running of the TS Eliot Prize from the Poetry Book Society and today it announced the ten books on this year's shortlist and launched a brand new website tseliot.com/foundation/prize/

For the first time the Poetry Book Society Choices from the year do not automatically get a place on the shortlist but the judges, Ruth Padel (Chair), Julia Copus and Alan Gillis, have selected the three Choices that have been announced.

The shortlist is dominated by Picador with five of their poets on the shortlist. But the list also includes a first collection from new kid on the block Pavilion Poetry.
