The T S Eliot Prize: Reading Group Scheme
The Poetry Book Society has just launched a new reading group scheme based on the shortlist for the 2010 T S Eliot Prize for Poetry. They are hoping to persuade fiction reading groups to try poetry, using the work of the poets shortlisted for the Prize.
Reading groups can download three poems from each book, together with reading group notes on the poems, a biography and photo of each poet from The Poetry Book Society website. The website will also offer readers the opportunity to vote for their favourite poet online and to take part in discussion of the shortlist. The result of the reading groups’ vote will be announced on Monday 24 January 2011.
There will also be a prize draw for tickets for the celebratory T S Eliot Prize Readings in the Royal Festival Hall in London’s Southbank on Sunday 23 January.
See The Poetry Book Society's website for more details.
