Bard Fiction Prize Winner

Each spring semester, the winner of the prestigious Bard Fiction Prize is in residence on campus. The author has weekly office hours when students are free to drop in and chat about their writing. Past winners have also hosted student activities—Karen Russell held a book club, Brian Conn conducted a collaborative workshop, and Bennett Sims had film screenings. For office hours and other information for the current BFP writer in residence, email the program coordinator at writtenarts@bard.edu.

For 2018 only, the Bard Fiction Prize winner, Carmen Maria Machado, will be in residence during the fall semester.
