We are delighted that Kate made the shortlist for the 2016 Costa Poetry Award in the Poetry category for Let Them Eat Chaos.
The Costa Book Awards is one of the UK's most prestigious and popular literary prizes and recognises some of the most enjoyable books of the year, written by authors based in the UK and Ireland.
The judges said it was "A magical book about now....indispensable, wonderful, a cry from the heart to a wounded world."
Let Them Eat Chaos (Picador) is a call to action, and, both on the page and in Tempest's electric performance, one of the most powerful poetic statements of the year.
The prize for the category winner and the overall winner is announced in January
