This event is for all Girton alumni and students to celebrate the winning poets of this year’s competition.

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 is being judged by experts drawn from across the literary world and academia. Registration for this event will open nearer the time. 

The winners will be announced on our website by the beginning of May.
