Professor Jon Stallworthy scoops another literary prize

10th November 2010

Professor Jon Stallworthy has been named as the next recipient of the biennial Wilfred Owen Poetry Award.

Conferred by the Wilfred Owen Association, the prize seeks to recognise a poet who has produced a 'sustained body of work that includes memorable war poems'.

The organisation noted that Professor Stallworthy, who has also written biography books and works of literary criticism, has published numerous collections of poetry, including The Anzac Sonata, Rounding the Horn and Body Language.

In addition, it highlighted the awards the writer has already won, pointing out that his biography Wilfred Owen took the Duff Cooper Memorial Prize and the E.M. Forster Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Professor Stallworthy will receive the Wilfred Owen Poetry Award on November 13th at Wolfson College in Oxford.

Last month, the shortlist for the 2010 T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry was confirmed, revealing that Seamus Heaney's Human Chain, Seeing Stars by Simon Armitage and Fiona Sampson's Rough Music are among the works in the running for the GBP 15,000 award.
