Nominations are now being accepted for the Saroyan International Prize for Writing, which awards $5000 each to a fiction winner and nonfiction winner. Deadline for nominations is 1/31/14. From the Stanford University Libraries site:
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.
Entries are now being accepted for the 2014 Prize and must be received by January 31, 2014. Please view the FAQ page for further information.
Funding sponsored in part by Stanford Associates.
