A global literary community protecting free expression and celebrating literature.

Known globally for our efforts to defend writers endangered because of their work, and for the PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature, PEN American Center runs a full range of programs to expand the freedom to write and celebrate the vital and universal power of literature. In doing so, we are building on a tradition begun in the years following World War I and carried forward by thousands of American writers.
