Picador Poetry Prize shortlist revealed

25th November 2010

The shortlist for the Picador Poetry Prize has been announced, ahead of the winner being named in January.

Mir Mahfuz Ali, Gill Andrews, Kaddy Benyon, Alan Buckley and Beatrice Garland are among the poets who have been nominated for the award, which recognises the UK's best unpublished poetry.

The shortlist for the prize - which is awarded for a selection of a writer's work rather than a single poem or collection - is completed by Edward MacKay, Richard Meier, Helen Mort, Andrew Sclater and Ben Wilkinson.

Don Paterson, the chair of the judging panel and a former T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry winner, commented: 'We've been delighted with the quality and variety of the entries, which have presented us with a snapshot of poetry in terrifically good health.'

The winner of the prize will receive an advance and the opportunity to publish a collection, which will be edited by Paterson, through Picador.

Last month, the shortlist for the prestigious T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry was revealed and included Human Chain by Seamus Heaney, Simon Armitage's Seeing Stars and Rough Music by Fiona Sampson. The winner will be named on January 24th.
