The Keats-Shelley Memorial Association is pleased to announce the shortlists for 2019’s Keats-Shelley Prize, which marks the publication 200 years ago of the first two cantos of Lord Byron’s satirical masterpiece, Don Juan.
The Essays were judged by Professors Sharon Ruston and Simon Bainbridge, both of Lancaster University.
The Poetry Judges are Professor Deryn Rees-Jones of Liverpool University and Will Kemp, a former winner of the Keats-Shelley Poetry Prize.
Both shortlists are now in the hands of this year’s Chair of Judges, Professor Michael Rosen. Professor Rosen will announce the Winners will be announced on 29th April at our annual Awards Ceremony in London.
