And the winner is ....
Gifted poet, Sarah Howe, whose debut collection Loop of Jade was awarded the T. S. Eliot poetry prize 2015 on Monday evening, January 11th at a ceremony which took place at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. Howe, a fellow at Harvard University’s Radcliffe Institute, was awarded the £20,000 prize for work which examines her dual British and Chinese heritage.
Howe beat many strong contenders and known names to the prize, including Don Paterson and Claudia Rankine, with Chair of Judges, Pascale Petit, saying that Howe’s work would ‘change British poetry.’
Loop of Jade is published by Chatto & Windus.
