The 2019 PEN America Literary Awards are open for submission
Since 1963, the PEN America Literary Awards have honored outstanding voices in translation, fiction, poetry, science writing, essay, sports writing, biography, children’s literature, and drama. With the help of our partners, PEN America confers over 20 distinct awards, fellowships, grants and prizes each year, awarding nearly $350,000 to writers and translators.
Nominations for the PEN/Osterweil Prize for Poetry, PEN/Magid Award for Editing, PEN/Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater Award, and PEN/ESPN Award for Lifetime Achievement in Literary Sports Writing are open to PEN America Members. See the PEN America Awards page for more information.
