The PEN Writers’ Emergency Fund gives emergency grants to writers who find themselves in severe financial crisis. In the past year, Writers’ Fund grants have helped a novelist facing eviction stay in his home, a playwright keep the power on and continue his lifesaving home dialysis treatment, a journalist purchase much-needed hearing aids, plus help more than 30 other writers in crisis. You can support our efforts to help writers in need by participating in the Barnes & Noble PEN Writers’ Emergency Fund Bookfair.
