PEN Guinea-Bissau was formally created in 2018. In this first phase, the Center's three main objectives are:

- Use literature and literary cultural events to promote freedom of expression, raise awareness of social issues and the defense of other fundamental rights;
- Promote the habit of reading and facilitate free access to books and the world of literature by holding literary events throughout the country, particularly in schools;
- Support literacy and promote in a variety of ways - including through sponsorship of literary contests and support for the edition of unpublished works - the emergence and affirmation of new talents;
