Griffin Winners Announced

The Griffin Poetry Prize winners were announced tonight at, what I hear, was a very swanky do in Toronto. As I mentioned before, the prize money went way up this year, which means the winners did better than ever and all the nominated poets came away with something (besides, of course, the honour of being short-listed).

Without further ado, the winners:
Karen Solie won the Canadian prize for her collection Pigeon (House of Anansi Press)
Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin won the International prize for her collection The Sun-fish (The Gallery Press)
Congratulations to both winners and to all the nominated poets, who were:
