Previous Submissions

Every year, the Griffin Poetry Prize receives hundreds of poetry books submitted by publishers from around the world. Information about the thousands of entries submitted for the Prize since 2000 are now compiled in a database … and you’re invited to explore it! The Griffin Trust hopes this will encourage more readers to learn about poetry publishers, as well as inspiring more publishers to submit entries for the Prize.
