2023 Literary Gala Sponsorships

Sponsorships may include donations of equal value or table sponsorships, which include attendance at the cocktail reception, dinner, and afterparty. Additionally, table sponsorships include the opportunity to have a distinguished author join you as Literary Host, to be coordinated with the PEN America team. Host selections are subject to author availability.

Due to the high demand of this event, floor seating cannot be guaranteed. It is highly recommended to pledge or purchase your tables by February 15, 2023 in order to be considered for the main floor.
