We’re looking for young people to become part of our virtual book group, to read and review the shortlisted titles for the Corneliu M Popescu Prize 2011, for poetry translated from a European language into English.
The book group will run between September and October 2011 and all those taking part receive a free copy of one of the shortlisted titles to keep. As a book club member you will be asked to write a 200 word review of your book which can be used on the Poetry Society website.
The prospect of venturing into uncharted waters excited this year’s judges, Jane Draycott and Sasha Dugdale: “Imagine living in a house with dozens of rooms to explore and as many different views to look out on, yet only staying in the one room. That’s what our imaginative lives would be like without literary translation, and why the Corneliu M Popescu Prize is so invaluable as a celebration of the best new work in the field.” Jane Draycott.
Only twelve places are available on a first-come-first-served basis and for this particular opportuntity you must be a youth member of the Poetry Society. Please contact Alan Ward by email to apply: firstname.lastname@example.org
