Established in 2013 with a gift from the late novelist Donald Windham in memory of his partner of forty years, Sandy M. Campbell, the Windham-Campbell Prizes at Yale University recognize writers from any country and call attention to their literary achievement, providing them with the opportunity to focus on their work independent of financial concerns. This year’s eight recipients hail from the United States, Canada/Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, New Zealand, Yankunytjatjara Aboriginal/Australia, and Ireland, and were chosen in four categories: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama.
