  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.
