Presenting the 2015 Whiting Award Winners










The Paris Review offers our congratulates to the ten winners of this year’s Whiting Awards.

Since 1985, the Whiting Foundation has supported creative writing through the Whiting Awards, which remain one of the most prestigious and largest monetary gifts to writers, and are based on early accomplishment and the promise of great work to come. The program has awarded more than six million dollars to three hundred writers and poets.
