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 entry period for the 2018 Saroyan Prize closed on January 31, 2018. The winners will be announced in late summer. We will begin accepting submissions for the 2020 Prize (for books published in 2018 and 2019) in the fall of 2018.
