The Griffin Trust was created to serve and encourage excellence in poetry written in English     anywhere in the world. The Griffin Trust is a Canadian initiative founded in April, 2000 by Scott Griffin, its Chairman, with Trustees Margaret Atwood, Robert Hass, Michael Ondaatje, Robin Robertson and David Young. The purpose of The Griffin Trust is to raise public awareness of the crucial role poetry must play in society's cultural life.
The Griffin Trustís support for poets, for poetry, and for the publishers of poetry will includes two annual literary prizes worth $40,000 each. The prizes are awarded annually for collections of poetry published in English during the preceding year. One prize goes to a living Canadian poet, the other to a living poet from any other country, which may include Canada. Qualified judges will be selected annually by the Trustees and the prizes will be awarded in the spring of each year.
