2017 PEN Literary Awards Ceremony

PEN America will host the 2017 PEN America Literary Awards Ceremony on March 27, 2017 at The New School’s John L. Tishman Auditorium. A reception will follow. 

The PEN America Literary Awards is the most comprehensive awards program in the country. The evening will celebrate remarkable literary achievements in fiction, nonfiction, science writing, essays, sports writing, biography, children’s literature, translation, drama, and poetry. With the help of our many partners and supporters, PEN America will confer nearly $315,000 in awards to winning writers and translators.

For the 2017 Awards cycle, longlists were announced December 5 through December 9 in partnership with Mashable, and finalists were announced on January 18. Winners will be announced February 22, except those for the awards for debut fiction and essay writing as well as those for the PEN/Jean Stein Book Award and the PEN/Nabokov Award, which will be announced live at the ceremony.
