Paul Vermeersch Predicts the Griffin Winners

A few months ago, our March Writer-in-Residence, Paul Vermeersch, posted his predictions for the Griffin Poetry Prize shortlists. The shortlists were announced on April 6th, and Paul was spot on with some of his choices. This month, the Globe and Mail asked Paul to predict the Griffin Poetry Prize winners. He writes, "I can't remember a time when I so thoroughly enjoyed reading all the books on a prize's short list.... It would have been painful to have to cast the deciding vote in either category, but The Globe and Mail has asked me to guess which books will win, and so I will." Read Paul's article, "They're off! Who will win the Griffins?" to see who he picked.

The Griffin Poetry Prize winners will be announced on June 3rd.
