The Anchored World is a PEN America Finalist

Our fall 2022 book, The Anchored World: Flash Fairy Tales and Folklore by Jasmine Sawers is a Finalist the PEN America Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Short Story Collection! Huge congratulations to Jasmine! We are so thrilled that The Anchored World has received this amazing honor and recognition!

Jasmine attended the PEN America Literary awards ceremony in New York City on March 2, which was hosted by Kal Penn and was filled with speeches and entertainment from many literary and entertainment luminaries. Jasmine ran into RMP author Sofia Samatar (Monster Portraits) at the event as well. Sofia’s latest book, The White Mosque (Catapult), is a Finalist for the Jean Stein Book Award. So wonderful to see our RMP authors garnering much-deserved accolades!
