We're excited to share that Mark Doty's DEEP LANE has been selected as one of ten finalists for the annual TS Eliot Prize, one of the UK's most prestigious poetry awards. Doty has taken home the prize once before, in 1995 for his collection MY ALEXANDRIA. Previous winners also include Anne Carson, Ted Hughes, and Sharon Olds.
This year's judges are poets Pascale Petit, Kei Miller, and Ahren Warner. Petit has praised the shortlisted books for their "ambition, verve and technical mastery."
The TS Eliot Prize Readings will be held on January 10, 2016, in London. The winner will be announced the next day.
