Zambian PEN was established in 2004 and runs an extensive programme of literary events, including ‘Story Time’ events for the whole family. The Centre is also collaborating on a ‘Power in the Voice’ project which is running in different countries of Southern Africa, a mentoring programme that identifies young local talent and encourages writers to realise their full potential.

The Centre runs a programme of schools clubs, which it has piloted in a number of girls’ schools and will develop in a further two schools. The clubs will involve writing workshops and providing reading materials to schools to promote a reading culture.
