The Laurence L. & Thomas Winship/PEN New England Award (previously L.L. Winship/PEN New England Award) is awarded annually by PEN New England to honor a New England author or book with a New England setting or subject.[1][2] The award was established in 1975 by The Boston Globe in conjunction with PEN to honor the veteran Boston Globe editor Laurence L. Winship.

Since 2005, the award has been presented in three categories: fiction, non-fiction, and poetry with each winner receiving $1,000.[1] In 2012, the award was renamed the Laurence L. & Thomas Winship/PEN New England Award in honor of father and son, Thomas Winship, both long-time Boston Globe editors.

The award presentation is sponsored in part by the JFK Presidential Library.[3] The award is one of many PEN awards sponsored by International PEN affiliates in over 145 PEN centres around the world.
