the Saturday workshops

Annual TS Eliot Prize shortlist workshop

Saturday workshopstse list




Ten books. Ten poets. The most prestigious poetry prize in the UK. The day before the big prize reading.

This one-day workshop takes all ten of the shortlisted books and puts them under the magnifying glass – reading, discussion and background info all mean you’ll come out with a good handle on the shortlist, whether you’re going to the big reading or not. This is a really fun, intense workshop.

This workshop is held on the day before the big reading at the Southbank Centre, at which all the ten poets will read from their shortlisted books. You don’t have to buy anything, it doesn’t matter if you’ve not read any of the books, and there will be copies there for you to look at.
