The biennial Ross and Davis Mitchell Prize seeks to recognize Canadian poets whose work wrestles with the beauty and complexity of religious faith. In 2019, the winner and runner-up will be awarded $20,000 and $5,000 respectively, by a panel of three celebrated writers: Lorna Goodison, Chelene Knight, and Scott Cairns. This prize is sponsored by the Mitchell Foundation, and is offered through Image Journal. Read more about it here.
The entry period for the 2019 Ross and Davis Mitchell Prize is now open and closes June 30th, 2019.
