Anne Stevenson to chair T.S. Eliot Prize judges

24th June 2010

The judges for the 2010 T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry have been confirmed by the Poetry Book Society.

Writer and poet Anne Stevenson will chair the judging panel, where she will be joined by author Bernardine Evaristo and the Whitbread Poetry Award-winning Michael Symmons Roberts.

In October, the judges will meet to determine six titles of the ten-book shortlist for the award. Four collections are automatically shortlisted after being named Poetry Book Society Choices throughout the year.

White Egrets by Derek Walcott, Simon Armitage's Seeing Stars and Human Chain by Seamus Heaney are the works currently on the shortlist. The fourth will be determined in August, when the winter choice is named.

The organisers commented: '[The T.S. Eliot Prize] is unique as it is always judged by a panel of established poets and it has been described by Sir Andrew Motion as "the prize most poets want to win".'

Previous winners include Philip Gross, Carol Ann Duffy, Don Paterson and Ted Hughes.

Last week, Geoffrey Hill was elected the Professor of Poetry at the University of Oxford, becoming the 44th person to hold the prestigious post since it was created in 1708.
