  1. My first collection was published a few months ago by an Irish online publisher. So what are the status of e-books? Are they eligible? While a print edition may appear in the future, the collection is titled “I Love The Internet” so an e-book seemed apt. And it includes both audio and visual – something I deemed preferable to print alone and more in keeping with my style. Anyhow, I look forward to your response. Cheers, Kevin

  2. Books only available in digital format are not eligible for submission to the Griffin Poetry Prize. Your publisher can keep us informed if this or future collections of yours are offered in print. Best wishes with your work.

  3. Someone gave me a ticket to the live awards ceremony a couple years ago. I do not see a button to purchase tickets for this year. How might I go about getting 2 tickets?

  4. Tickets for the 2017 shortlist readings will become available to order on or around the date of the 2017 shortlist announcement, which is April 11th. We hope you will join us again this year for what will be an amazing evening of poetry readings!

  5. well it is past April 11 and I keep coming back to check to get tickets! is it hidden somewhere on the site?
