Robert Bingham Fellowship for Writers
The PEN/Robert Bingham Fellowship for Writers honors exceptionally talented fiction writers whose debut work‚ÄĒa first novel or collection of short stories published in 2010‚ÄĒrepresents distinguished literary achievement and suggests great promise. One PEN/Robert Bingham Fellow will be selected by a panel of three writers or editors who are PEN members.

The winner receives a cash award of $35,000, a stipend intended to permit a significant degree of leisure in which to pursue a second work of literary fiction. The Robert Bingham Fellow is also encouraged to become an active participant in the PEN community and its programs advancing literature, free expression, and the worldwide PEN community of writers.

The PEN/Robert Bingham Fellowships were established in memory of Robert Bingham, who died in 1999 at the age of 33, to commemorate his support of young writers, his love of literature, and his contribution to literary fiction.

Past fellows: Carolyn Cooke, Matthew Klam, Manil Suri, Jonathan Safran Foer, Monique Truong, Will Heinrich, Christopher Coake, Janna Levin, Dalia Sofer, and Donald Ray Pollock
