William Saroyan International Prize for Writing
The Stanford University Libraries and the William Saroyan Foundation jointly award the William Saroyan International Prize for Writing, a biennial competition for newly-published books.
The prize commemorates the life, legacy and intentions of William Saroyan - author, artist, dramatist, composer - and is intended to encourage new or emerging writers, rather than to recognize established literary figures.
The submission period for the 2014 Saroyan Prize is now closed. The winners will be announced in the summer of 2014.
Funding sponsored in part by Stanford Associates.
