Ruth Awolola has been selected for the Poetry Society and T.S. Eliot Prize’s first ever Young Critics Scheme. 

Ten writers aged 18-25 will create video reviews of the collections shortlisted for this years’ T.S. Eliot Prize. The videos will appear on both the Prize and the Poetry Society’s websites, social media and YouTube channels leading up to January’s Awards Ceremony.

The writers will also take part in online workshops led by Jen Campbell to hone their critical skills.
