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.
Submissions are now being accepted for the 2022 Saroyan Prize (for books published in 2020 and 2021). The deadline for entries is January 31, 2022. Please read our FAQ page for complete eligibility requirements.
