Congratulations to the writers we nominated for the 2019 Pen/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers. Cross your fingers for these three stories:

“The Well in the Jungle” by Salin Shakya (forthcoming in October)

"Whatever They Told You Not to Be" by Natalie Hernandez (forthcoming in December)

The Pen/Dau Prize honors 12 authors whose debut short story is published in a literary journal in the past year. The winners are published in The PEN America Best Debut Short Stories by Catapult and awarded $2,000. Not too shabby! 805 is proud to publish debut and emerging writers and to nominate our writers to prestigious prize such as this one.
