We have two shortlists for literary prizes to share today.

The T.S. Eliot Prize honors the year’s best new poetry collection written in English and is Britain’s most prestigious award for poetry.

The winner, to be revealed in January, receives £25,000 (about $32,000), with shortlisted poets being given £1,500 (about $1,900). 

Here are the contenders; you can learn more about them and the prize on the T.S. Eliot Foundation website:

Also out: the 2020 Baillie Gifford Prize shortlist.

Britain’s top nonfiction award brings its winner £50,000 (about $64,000).

Fussy’s dedicated followers may remember that a teenager was originally nominated; Dara McAnulty did not make the shortlist, however.

Here are those who did; the winner will be revealed November 24.
