PEN America Publications
PEN America publishes several works of original literature every year.
The Sentences That Create Us: Crafting A Writer’s Life in Prison (Haymarket Books) provides a road map for incarcerated people and their allies to have a thriving writing life behind bars—and shared beyond the walls—that draws on the unique insights of more than fifty contributors, most themselves justice-involved, to offer advice, inspiration and resources.
A vital, necessary playbook for navigating and defending free speech today by Suzanne Nossel, CEO of PEN America, Dare To Speak (HarperCollins Dey Street) provides a pathway for promoting free expression while also cultivating a more inclusive public culture.
The Dreaming Out Loud anthology is a collection of 58 personal essays, short stories, and poems from undocumented student writers.
The Prison Writing Awards Anthology brings the winning works of the Prison Writing Awards together in a beautiful collection to share with the world.
This annual anthology features the winning works of the PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize, recognizing writers with outstanding fiction debuts in print or online literary magazines.
PEN America: A Journal for Writers and Readers published fiction, nonfiction, poetry, conversation, graphic narrative, and more. PEN America championed international authors and provided first-hand insight into the minds of contemporary writers through provocative symposia.
Glossolalia was the translation magazine of PEN America. Glossolalia advocated for writers with limited access to the global reading community. By publishing works from lesser-translated languages, we connected storytellers to audiences eager for a vivid, mind-expanding look at experiences unlike their own.
