Wolfson College, together with the English Faculty, runs the Jon Stallworthy Poetry Prize competition for postgraduate students at the University of Oxford. Established in memory of Professor Jon Stallworthy (1935-2014), the prize is awarded each year for the best poem in English verse not exceeding 40 lines in length and is open to all postgraduate students at Oxford.
A much-loved tutor, scholar and poet, Jon Stallworthy was a Fellow of Wolfson between 1986 and his death in 2014 and was twice Acting President of the College. Thanks to generous gifts from Old Possum's Practical Trust and the Derek Hill Foundation, the Stallworthy Prize was first awarded in 2016. We now want to endow the prize as a permanent tribute to Professor Stallworthy and hope that his many friends and admirers in the Wolfson community will give their support.
