TS Eliot Prize controversy: time to occupy poetry?.

This post is a really well-written exploration of what happens when an award becomes corporately funded. Thanks to the original for covering it much more eloquently than I could. 🙂 Please click and read, it’s an interesting plot twist in the world of literary awards.

Thanks!

  1. Thanks for the heads up…it was the Omnivore whose post I was trying to get to. There are a few awards out there that are corporately funded and with charitable budgets shrinking, I would expect to see more of this….
