The full judging panel for the 2011 Man Booker Prize for Fiction is announced today, Thursday 25 November 2010. The judges are Matthew d'Ancona, writer and journalist; Susan Hill, author; Chris Mullin, author and politician and Gaby Wood, Head of Books at the Daily Telegraph. The judges will be chaired by author and former Director-General of MI5, Dame Stella Rimington.

Ion Trewin, Literary Director of the Man Booker Prizes, comments, 'Every year we look for a different mix of judges and I'm particularly delighted by the breadth and range of interests of the 2011 team.'

Dame Stella Rimington comments, 'I am looking forward to chairing such a distinguished and talented team of judges. I am sure we will have many stimulating debates and will come up with a worthy winner of next year's prize.'

The 2010 Man Booker Prize was won by The Finkler Question by Howard Jacobson (Bloomsbury) and was chosen from 138 entries.

The 2011 longlist, 'The Booker Dozen' - the 12 (or 13) titles under serious consideration for the prize - will be announced in late July. The shortlist of six books will be announced in early September. The winner of the 2011 Man Booker Prize will be announced on the BBC from London's Guildhall at an awards ceremony on Tuesday 18th October 2011.

Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
