Event Details

The 29th Annual James Jones First Novel Fellowship will be awarded to an American author of a first novel-in-progress, in 2020, by the James Jones Literary Society.

The award is intended to honor the spirit of unblinking honesty, determination, and insight into cultural and social issues exemplified by the late James Jones, author of From Here to Eternity and other prose narratives of distinction. Jones himself was the recipient of aid from many supporters as a young writer and his family, friends, and admirers have established this award of $10,000 to continue the tradition in his name. Two runners up awards of $1000 each may be given by the Jones Literary Society. All selections are at the discretion of the judges.

Eligible writers:

  • Have never published a novel
  • Are U.S. citizens
  • May have published any other type of work including non-fiction articles and short stories
