The 2020 Griffin Poetry Prize Anthology

A Selection of the Shortlist edited by Hoa Ngyuen

The prestigious and highly anticipated annual anthology of the best Canadian and international poetry from the shortlist of the 2020 Griffin Poetry Prize.

Each year, the best books of poetry published in English internationally and in Canada are honoured with the Griffin Poetry Prize, one of the world’s most prestigious and richest literary awards. Since 2001, this annual prize has tremendously spurred interest in and recognition of poetry, focusing worldwide attention on the formidable talent of poets writing in English and works in translation. Annually, The Griffin Poetry Prize Anthology features the work of the extraordinary poets shortlisted for the awards and introduces us to some of the finest poems in their collections.
