ASU Regents’ Professor Norman Dubie wins Griffin Poetry Prize

Dr. Norman Dubie was awarded the 2016 international Griffin Poetry Prize for his collection "The Quotations of Bone," an exploration of viciousness and humanity.

Dubie, who was described by the New York Times as “one of our premier poets,” established the ASU Department of English’s master of fine arts program in creative writing — which U.S. News & World Report has ranked in the top 20 in the nation — in 1975. He has taught at the university since then, during which time his writing appeared in virtually every major outlet of poetry, including the American Poetry Review, the New Yorker and the Norton Anthology of Modern Poetry.
