Bandmember to find the most "exhilarating new voices from the last ten years"…

RADIOHEAD star COLIN GREENWOOD is to be on the panel for a new poetry competition.

Ten years ago ’New Generation Poets’ introduced 20 new young poets to the public. This year the search will take place again.

Funded by Arts Council England and administered by the Poetry Book Society, the promotion will discover who are the most exciting new poets to emerge over the last decade.

The aim of ’Next Generation Poets’ is to highlight the achievements of these writers, and to bring new readers to poetry.

Greenwood will be the only musician on the judging panel. He was chosen following his English degree at Cambridge, where his thesis was on Raymond Carver.
