Duffy to chair T S Eliot Prize
14.06.12 | Katie Allen
Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy is to chair the judging panel for the 2012 T S Eliot Prize for Poetry.
A former winner of the prize, Duffy will be joined by poets Michael Longley and David Morley on the panel.
A ten-book shortlist will be picked in October, with the four Poetry Book Society Choices from 2012 automatically included; these are: The Death of King Arthur by Simon Armitage (Faber), The Dark Film by Paul Farley (Picador) and Place by Jorie Graham (Carcanet) plus the Winter Choice, to be announced in August.
The winner of the £15,000 prize will be announced on 14th January 2013, with each of the shortlisted poets receiving £1,000 each. The shortlist readings will take place on 13th January in the Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall.
Last year’s winner was John Burnside for his collection Black Cat Bone (Cape).
