We’re pleased to announce that the Motherwell Prize—which recently and in its earliest incarnation as the Alberta Prize has brought to light some of the brightest young poets, including Chelsey Minnis, Sasha Steensen, Laura Sims, Ariana Reines, and Harmony Holiday—has shed its skin yet again to emerge as the Ottoline Prize. All hail Lady Ottoline, beloved undersung patron of the Bloomsbury Group. The Ottoline Prize will award publication and a cash prize to a book of poems by a woman writing in English who has previously published one or more books of poetry. Ears peeled for more details.
