This year, as always, we are profoundly grateful to the judges, themselves doubtless pressured for time for their own work on a daily basis, who have committed so much energy and discerning intelligence to the challenge of choosing finalists for these great prizes. Their labor and dedication is reflected in the marvelous range and quality of work held aloft by PEN in this announcement.”
