PEN America invites applications for Jean Stein Grant for Literary Oral History

Founded in 1922, PEN America champions the freedom to write, recognizes the power of the word to transform the world, and works to unite writers and their allies to celebrate creative expression and defend the liberties that make it possible.

To that end, it is inviting applications for the PEN/Jean Stein Grant for Literary Oral History. Two grants of $15,000 will be awarded to recognize literary works of nonfiction that use oral history to illuminate an event, individual, place, or movement.

The submitted project must be the work of a single individual, written in English. It must be a work of literary nonfiction or an unpublished work-in-progress of literary nonfiction (scholarly/academic writing is not eligible). Works must not be published prior to April 1, 2023, as the grants are intended to support the completion of a final book.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the PEN America website.

Deadline: June 1, 2022
