Following the announcement of the Griffin Poetry Prize 2005 Awards, the Canadian and International winners – Roo Borson and Charles Simic – joined a Griffin team, including Carolyn Forché, Scott Griffin, Robin Robertson, David Young, Leslie Greentree, David Kirby and Gerald Stern to head to Ireland to participate in readings and celebrations for the 2005 Dublin Writers Festival on June 16th and 17th, 2005. The trip to Dublin was yet another part of the vision Scott Griffin sees for bringing the Griffin Poetry Prize and prize winners to an increasingly international audience.

  1. ROYAL LIVER – On the waterfront in Liverpool is the LIVER BUILDING, topped by splendid Liver birds, and the HQ of the said insurance company. That’s the derivation of the insurance company’s name – rooted in the mythology surrounding the city across the water from Dublin.
