We at The Tishman Review are excited to announce our nominees for the PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers. The prize “recognizes twelve emerging fiction writers each year for their debut short story” and “aims to support the launch of their careers as fiction writers.”
It is always an immense honor to be able to bring a writer’s debut work into the world. We are pleased to recognize these talented emerging writers with our nomination.
