Carcanet poet Sinéad Morrissey has been short listed for the TS Eliot Prize for Poetry for her third collection, The State of the Prisons. Now in its thirteenth year, the TS Eliot Prize has been called "poetry's most coveted award". The prize is designed to recognise the best new collection of poetry published in 2005 and revious winners include George Szirtes, Don Paterson and Alice Oswald. I've only read about half of Sinéad's collection, but what I have read has impressed me. I'll review it soon. Promise.
