About

Uyghur PEN was officially established in 2008. Since its inception the Centre has been working towards the twin aims of raising awareness about Uyghur culture and fighting for Uyghur writers facing persecution from the Chinese government.  Uyghur PEN seeks to build bridges between the Uyghur community and the Han Chinese, rather than to widen the divide.
