About

Tapei Chinese PEN and its 50 members see their role in society as defenders of the national psyche and cultural heritage. The Centre’s priority is to promote writing and reading as remedies to modern souls impoverished by a lopsided emphasis on business and technology. Since its inception in 1959, the Centre has organised visits to remote or less privileged communities to promote literacy through reading and writing. Its also regularly organises literary salons and lectures.
