The Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry | 22-Dec-09

The Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry is looking for nominations.

The award, which is judged by Imtiaz Dharker, Jo Shapcott and Tim Supple,  is described by the Poetry Society as aiming "to recognise the many forms in which poets work, from poetry collections to verse novels; radio poems and film poems to  libretti and verse dramas; individual poems or poem sequences;  work  for adults or children; through to poetry written for public sculptures, inscriptions, or other artistic contexts."

The Society is looking for work which received its first publication or public presentation between 1 January 2009 and 31 December 2009.

Nominations must be in by 8 January 2010.

The award was founded by Carol Ann Duffy, funded by the annual honorarium which the Poet Laureate traditionally receives from HM the Queen.
