International PEN is a worldwide association of writers working to promote literacy and free speech. It promotes friendship and intellectual co-operation among writers everywhere, and in fighting for freedom of expression, it represents the conscience of world literature. Adelaide PEN formed to give people the opportunity to work locally on global issues; to fight censorship, support writers in prison and isolated women writers and to contribute to the conservation of literary and cultural heritage.
