Just heard the news that John Burnside has won this year's T.S Eliot Prize. Congratulations to him. He read from his winning collection, Black Cat Bone for StAnza last autumn in a stunning reading with Canadian poet Karen Solie.
A lucky few will get to hear him at StAnza in March at one of our Round Table readings.
Burnside is Professor of Creative Writing at the University of St Andrews and lives in rural Fife. The collection won the Forward Prize 2011.
