Queens' College Poetry Prizes 2021

The families of two former students endowed two poetry prizes in their memory, as follows:

The Sam Hadfield Poetry Prize

Eligibility: Queens' undergraduate students
The prize value is £100

This prize is to encourage Queens’ undergraduates, not solely from the Faculty of English, to write poetry both as an art form and as a means of expressing their feelings.

The Henry Frederick Farr Poetry Prize

Eligibility: All Queens' students
The prize value is £100

This prize was set up in 1981 and is open to all student members of Queens’.
