Discover the pleasures of poetry with the T S Eliot Prize reading groups
Whether you're a member of a poetry reading group, in a reading group that would like to try poetry, or just setting one up, you can still download the notes for the 2015 T S Eliot Prize here, including three poems from each shortlisted book, together with reading group notes on the poems, a biography and photo of each poet.
Our Reading Groups Competition encourages your reading group to shadow the judges for the prize by discussing the poetry on the list. We want to know who your group decided should win with a short write-up of your session, detailing your personal choice of winner and any key conversations or disagreements you had along the way.
This year's competition has closed and will reopen when the 2016 shortlist is announced. Congratulations to the Penzance and Newlyn Poetry Group who won this year's competition!
Last year's winners, the Indian King Poets in North Cornwall, enjoyed a visit from the winner of the 2014 Prize, David Harsent.
