Please join PEN America in celebrating the best voices in literature from debut fiction to nonfiction, poetry, drama, and the range of creative works that free expression make possible.

The winners of the 2019 PEN America Literary Awards will be celebrated at the 2019 PEN America Literary Awards Ceremony on February 26, 2019, in NYC. The ceremony will feature live announcements, performances of honored works, and will be followed by a champagne toast.

Since 1963, the PEN America Literary Awards have honored many of the most outstanding voices in literature across diverse genres, including fiction, poetry, science writing, essays, 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.
