The following organizations are partnering with The Griffin Trust For Excellence In Poetry to expand the opportunities that are part of the Griffin Poetry Prize.
Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity is pleased to support the Griffin Poetry Prize, and the creative potential of literary artists. To complement the prize awarded to the International recipient of the annual Griffin Poetry Prize, Banff Centre will offer 2 weeks of creative retreat in one of the Leighton Studios.
Artists require unfettered time and space to engage in their work and the world. Building on the legacy of their founder, Ursula Corning, the Civitella Ranieri Foundation opens the doors of its 15th century castle in rural Umbria annually for four six-week residency sessions of self-directed studio and work time.
Each residency community of 12-14 brings together accomplished international artists, writers, and composers at emerging and established moments in their careers. They are joined by a limited number of invited Director’s guests to foster a robust contemporary dialogue that transcends disciplines and geography. A Civitella Ranieri Fellowship changes lives, develops permanent connections, and refreshes one’s work.
Civitella Ranieri Foundation is very pleased to support the Griffin Poetry Prize, and offers a 6 week residency to the Canadian recipient of the Griffin Poetry Prize.
