The PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, named for Nobel Prize winner William Faulkner, is awarded to an American citizen every Spring by The PEN/Faulkner Foundation in Washington, D.C. PEN is a worldwide organization of poets, playwrights, essayists, editors, and novelists (whence the acronym PEN).
The PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction is a national prize that honors outstanding works of fiction by American writers each year. Three judges, chosen annually by the directors of the PEN/Faulkner Foundation, select five books from among the more than 300 submitted works, making this the largest peer-juried award in the U.S.
The winner receives a $15,000 cash award, while finalists receive $5,000.
