    If you’re looking for something to read this National Poetry Month, look no further than the Griffin Poetry Prize shortlist. The Griffin Poetry Prize is Canada’s most generous poetry award. After reading through 572 books of poetry from 14 different countries, this year’s judges have whittled the list down to these four finalists for the International category. (You can also check out the Canadian shortlist here.) The winner, who will receive $65,000, will be announced online on May 19th. (Each of the finalists will be awarded $10,000—nothing to sneeze at.)

    Congratulations to all!
