The Poetry Book Society has announced its shortlist for the 2012 T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry. Judges Carol Ann Duffy (Chair), Michael Longley and David Morley have chosen six collections from the 131 books submitted by publishers, which join the four PBS Choices to make up the ten collections on the shortlist.
The winner will be announced at the Award Ceremony on Monday 14 January 2013, when the winner will be presented with a cheque for £15,000, donated by Mrs Valerie Eliot, who has generously given the prize money since the inception of the Prize. The shortlisted poets will each receive £1,000.
