Jon Stallworthy Poetry Prize

Wolfson College, together with the English Faculty at Oxford, runs this poetry competition for postgraduate students at the University of Oxford in memory of Professor Jon Stallworthy (1935-2014).

The competition is open to any student currently enrolled in postgraduate studies at the University of Oxford and is awarded, provided there is an entry of sufficient merit, for the best poem in English verse not exceeding 40 lines in length on a yearly chosen subject.

Generous donations from Old Possum's Practical Trust and the Derek Hill Foundation (with a special thank you to Lord Gowrie), provide the support for the prize.
