Literary award announcements were flying in yesterday — here are the many writers who were celebrated, including the one who will be taking home two pieces of prestige (and their associated purses).
This award honors an author who is, obviously, younger than thirty-five and who has released their first and only work of fiction in the past five years.
The judges, all of whom either received a National Book Award nod (nomination or prize) or were chosen as a 5 Under 35 recipient, selected these writers to receive a $1,000 prize:
Over five hundred submissions this year vied for the $15,000 cash prize.
The four other finalists receive $5,000 each:
Eight writers who had no idea they were under consideration for this honor have now each received an unrestricted grant of $165,000.
