The 2009 Canadian and international shortlists for the Griffin Poetry Prize were announced on Tuesday, April 7 by Scott Griffin, founder of The Griffin Trust for Excellence in Poetry and David Young, trustee. We're thrilled to report that Jeramy Dodds's Crabwise to the Hounds was selected with the following citation from the judges:
Did you get a new ereading device over the holidays? Seems like almost everyone we know did! Ergo, we've decided to have an ebook sale that will help you fill up your ereader (whether it be brand, spankin' new or lovingly covered with old flecks of food from years of use).
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Canada Council of the Arts, the Government of Canada through the Canada Book Fund, the Ontario Arts Council and the Ontario Media Development Corporation for our publishing activities.
