Core to the organization’s mission, Inprint proudly supports the next generation of creative writers in Houston. Through fellowships and juried prizes for graduate students at the University of Houston Creative Writing Program and an annual prize for an undergraduate at Rice University, Inprint is able to enhance the writing lives of the nation’s top emerging writers.
During the 2015/2016 academic year, Inprint awarded $201,500 in prizes and fellowships, the organization’s highest amount of support for students in a single year. Since 1983, Inprint support of emerging writers has totaled more than $3.5 million, serving 500+ students from all walks of life. Recipients of these fellowships and prizes play an integral role in shaping the international literary landscape, and have gone on to publish books, win literary awards, serve as educators, and enrich the cultural life of Houston and other communities across the nation and around the world.
We offer our deepest thanks to the donors and underwriters of these fellowships and prizes, after whom these awards are named.
