The highly anticipated annual anthology of the best international poetry.
Each year, the best books of poetry published in English internationally and in Canada are honored with the Griffin Poetry Prize, one of the worlds most prestigious and richest literary awards. Since 2001, this annual prize has acted as a tremendous spur to interest in and recognition of poetry, focusing worldwide attention on the formidable talent of poets writing in English. And each year The Griffin Poetry Prize Anthology features the work of the extraordinary poets shortlisted for the awards and introduces readers to some of the finest poems in their collections.
