Jen Hadfield (born 1978 in Cheshire) is an English poet.
She won the 2008 T.S. Eliot Prize for poetry for her second collection, Nigh-No-Place. This was a notable honour for a relative newcomer, as the award's previous recipients include such major poets as Carol Ann Duffy, Seamus Heaney, and Ted Hughes.
Hadfield currently resides in Shetland, off the north-east coast of Scotland. She publishes a line of artbooks, using linocut, photography, woodwork, bookbinding and fly-tying, which she calls "Rogue Seeds".
Her third poetry collection, Byssus, is due to be published early 2014.
