Today, the Rona Jaffe Foundation announced their six 2020 Writers’ Awards recipients. The award, which comes with a $30,000 grant, was created to distinguish and support emerging women writers of promise in the early stages of their writing careers. Previous winners include Tracy K. Smith, Lan Samantha Chang, Eula Biss, and ZZ Packer.
The 2020 winners will be celebrated during a free virtual reading that is part of New York University’s Creative Writing Program Reading Series on Thursday, September 17th at 7pm!
