Here is the list of the nominees for the T S Eliot Literary Prize. The name at the bottom of the list is George Szirtes. I hope he gets to number one. I asked George to attend the St Clementin Literary Festival next August/September 2014. But even if the festival only ends up with an T S Eliot nominee, it will still be a coup.
Anyway the whole list:
The shortlist for the T S Eliot Prize for Poetry 2013 has been announced.
