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 help advance this mission, the organization is inviting applications for the PEN/Jean Stein Grant for Literary Oral History. Through the program, two grants of $15,000 will be awarded to support a literary work of nonfiction that uses oral history to illuminate an event, individual, place, or movement. Grants may be used to help maintain or complete an ongoing project and oral history must be a significant component of the project and its research.
The submitted project must be the work of a single individual, writing in English, and must be a work of literary nonfiction an unpublished work-in-progress work of literary nonfiction (scholarly/academic writing is not eligible).
See the PEN America website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
Deadline: June 1, 2021
