  [The Griffin Trust]

363 Parkridge Crescent

Oakville ON L6M 1A8





The Griffin Poetry Prize is the world’s largest prize for a first edition single collection of poetry written in, or translated into English, from any country in the world – the Griffin Trust For Excellence In Poetry aims to spark the public’s imagination and raise awareness of the crucial role poetry plays in our cultural life.

A Canadian prize is given to a living poet resident in Canada; an international prize is given to a living poet from any country in the world. Both prizes may include works in translation.

Eligible collections of poetry are those published between January 1 and December 31 of any given year. Submissions are accepted from publishers only.
