Friends of Writers is pleased to announce the winners of the 2016 Larry Levis Post-Graduate Stipend: Edward Porter in Fiction for THE CHANGING STATION, and Ross White in Poetry for GUILT LEDGER. Each winner received $4000. The judge in fiction was Eileen Pollack.  The judge in poetry was Edward Hirsch.

Congratulations to Edward and Ross, and many thanks to everyone who applied. Both judges report that choosing just one winner in each category was a difficult decision, as there were so many high-quality entries.

In 2017 there will again be two awards, one in poetry and one in fiction. Submission guidelines will be available and the amount of the 2017 awards announced as of August 1, 2017, with submissions accepted beginning September 1.
