      BARD FICTION PRIZE
      Bard College invites submissions for its annual Fiction Prize for young
      writers.

      The Bard Fiction Prize is awarded annually to a promising, emerging writer
      who is an American citizen aged 39 years or younger at the time of
      application.
      In addition to the monetary award, the winner receives an appointment as
      writer-in-residence at Bard College for one semester without the expectation
      that
      he or she teach traditional courses. The recipient will give at least one
      public lecture and will meet informally with students.
      The creation of the Bard Fiction Prize, presented each October to a promising
      young fiction writer, can be viewed as a continuation of Bard’s long-standing
      position as a center for creative, groundbreaking literary work by both
      faculty and students. From Saul Bellow, William Gaddis, Mary McCarthy, and
      Ralph
      Ellison to John Ashbery, Philip Roth, William Weaver, and Chinua Achebe, Bard’
      s
      literature faculty, past and present, represent some of the most important
      American writers of our time. The prize is intended to encourage and support
      young writers of fiction to pursue their creative goals and to provide an
      opportunity to work in a fertile and intellectual environment.
