Keats-Shelley Awards Ceremony 2019
Winners of 2019's Keats-Shelley and Young Romantics Prizes announced 29 April

The winners of 2019's Keats-Shelley and Young Romantics Prizes will be revealed on Monday evening - 29th April - at our annual Awards Ceremony in London. 

Professor Michael Rosen, Chair of the Judging Panel, will do the honours, before delivering a short talk and reading from his work. 

We are thrilled that actors from the Josephine Hart Foundation will start the evening with readings from Lord Byron's poems, to mark the 200 anniversary of Don Juan's initial publication in 1819. This inspired this year's twin poetry themes: 'Fiery Dust' and 'Wandering'.

Follow us on Twitter to find out the results: @Keats_Shelley

You can read all the shortlisted poems and the first ever shortlisted reviews on our Prize pages.
