Guidelines of assistance

The PEN Writers’ Emergency Fund is an emergency fund for writers in acute, emergent financial crisis. Depending on the situation, the fund gives grants of up to $2,000. The maximum amount is given only under especially dire circumstances.

Description

PEN America stands at the intersection of literature and human rights to protect open expression in the United States and worldwide. We champion the freedom to write, recognizing the power of the word to transform the world. Our mission is to unite writers and their allies to celebrate creative expression and defend the liberties that make it possible.
