The Poetry Book Society has announced its shortlist for the 2013 T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry. Judges Ian Duhig (Chair), Imtiaz Dharker and Vicki Feaver have chosen six collections from the 113 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 13 January 2014, when the winner will be presented with a cheque for £15,000, donated by the T.S. Eliot Trustees, following on in the tradition of Mrs Valerie Eliot, who generously gave the prize money from the inception of the Prize. The shortlisted poets will each receive £1,000.
