PEN AMERICA’S $10,000 Writing for Justice Fellowship will commission six writers …

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.” Elie Wiesel



Applications for the Pen America Writing for Justice Fellowship must be filed by July 1, 2018.  This fellowship “aims to harness the power of writers and writing in bearing witness to the societal consequences of mass incarceration by capturing and sharing the stories of incarcerated individuals, their families, communities, and the wider impact of the criminal justice system.  Our goal is to ignite a broad, sustained conversation about the dangers of over-incarceration and the imperative to mobilize behind rational and humane policies.” Details and link to application HERE.
