William Saroyan International Prize for Writing
The Stanford 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.
Congratulations to the authors shortlisted for the 2022 Saroyan Prize! The winners and finalists will be announced in late summer/early fall.
