PEN International is the largest association of writers, representing over 20,000 members across the globe. We work to promote literature and to strengthen freedom of expression on every continent. PEN was founded by the British poet, playwright and peace activist C.A. Dawson-Scott. Working with our first two Presidents, John Galsworthy and H.G. Wells, her idea was to create a space for writers everywhere to create dialogue, share ideas and build a forum uniting writers and readers irrespective of their culture, language or political opinion. Today, PEN includes tens of thousands of writers, translators, publishers, journalists, screen writers, bloggers and readers in over 150 Centres, spanning more than 110 countries, who contribute to our mission of protecting freedom of expression and promoting literature.
PEN International is a non-political organisation which holds Special Consultative Status at the UN and Associate Status at UNESCO.
