T S Eliot Prize Shadowing Scheme 2010 | 23-Nov-10

The T S Eliot Prize Shadowing Scheme provides an excellent opportunity for students to engage with the best new poetry by shadowing the judges of the T S Eliot Prize for Poetry. Students will be encouraged to read the poems and to take part in a poll to vote for their choice of winner. There will also be a competition for individual 'A' level students aged 16 - 19 to write the best 500 word rationale for their choice of poet.

Prizes for the winning student include tickets to the T S Eliot Readings and the award ceremony in January 2011, with the chance to meet the winning poet, and a complete set of the 10 shortlisted titles. The closing date is 20th December 2010.

For further details, please visit the Poetry Book Society website at www.poetrybooks.co.uk/projects/15.

A teachers' guide to the scheme is available on the emagazine website at www.englishandmedia.co.uk/eliot
