PEN International Circles
These groups form a worldwide community which weaves together the worlds of literature and free expression. PEN’s essential work is enabled by the commitment and the support of our own community – writers, readers, publishers, translators, bloggers and screen writers.
Now nearly 100 years old, PEN operates on the cutting edge of creativity and opinion. Every year we are extending our reach and developing our support to writers around the world, from providing asylum support to writers at risk in Syria and Iran to ensuring that children in Guinea have access to mother language literature and education.
