Writers around the world rely on PEN to advocate for their freedom and to defy those who want to silence them.
From practical support for writers seeking asylum or in exile, to using our platforms to share their words, to making space for unheard voices, to putting pressure on the powerful – this work is only possible with your support. Thank you.
Now approaching our centenary, PEN is recognised as the world’s foremost association of writers and as a leading expert on freedom of expression.
