Literature and freedom of expression only exist because they are shared between the writers and the readers of the world.
The Readers Circle brings together people passionate about the power of the written word, to support the essential work of PEN in protecting freedom of expression and celebrating literature.
Patrons of the Readers Circle pledge an annual gift - in one of three Tiers starting at $1,000 - which funds vital education, campaigning and protection work, and which safeguards PEN’s broader mission of advancing literature across borders and defending freedom of expression.
Many supporters also choose to become Friends of PEN, helping us through a regular gift of at least £5 per month.
If you would like to find out more about membership of the Readers Circle, please send a message to Paul.
