Jane Martin Poetry Prize 2024

Jane Martin Poetry Prize

The Jane Martin Poetry Prize is a national poetry competition, established in 2010, in memory of Girton alumna, Jane Elizabeth Martin (1978 Classics) through the generous support of Professor Sir Laurence Martin.

Now in its 14th year, this national prize for early career poets is a key part of the College’s support for poetry and will be of interest to all those who are serious about literary excellence. The competition has been judged by experts drawn from across the literary world and academia. This year’s panel has been led by two judges – Abigail Parry and Bohdan Piasecki.
