Girton College's National Jane Martin Poetry Prize opens for 2017

Girton College is delighted to invite entries for the 2017 Jane Martin Poetry Prize.  Now in its seventh year, the national prize for young 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 will be judged by experts drawn from across the literary world and academia. We are thrilled that this year the panel will be led by Grevel Lindop and Malcolm Guite. The winner will receive a cash prize of £700 and will have an opportunity to give a reading at a celebratory event at Girton College, at which the prize will be awarded. There will also be a second prize of £300 cash.

The competition opens on 26th January 2017 and closes at noon on 17th March 2017. Please find the 2017 information pack and entry rules here.
