As the deadline is earlier this year, PEN is reminding publishers and literary agents to submit their authors’ 2015 books for PEN’s prestigious awards which span the fields of fiction, essays, science writing, biography, and more. 

PEN also accepts nominations from writers and PEN Members for our many career achievement awards which honor playwrights, sportswriters, poets, and more.
