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 2016 Prize closed on January 29, 2016. We will begin accepting submissions for the 2018 Prize (for books published in 2016 and 2017) in the fall of 2016.
