The First Annual Montecito Journal Award in Literature by Jim Buckley

"In honor of the high regard we have for both the Profants and Fiesta Finale, we have teamed up with the Profant Foundation to create the Montecito Journal Award in Literature and to fund its nearly $2,500 scholarship. Anyone and everyone and in any age group is invited to apply, amateurs and professionals alike. We expect to enlist the help of some of Montecito’s most notable authors to help choose a winner. The Award carries with it a $2,000 check, a scholarship to attend the Santa Barbara Writers’ Conference, and we hope (it hasn’t been nailed down yet) an introduction to an active literary agent or publisher."
