The Enemies Project presents
English PEN Modern Literature Festival
Saturday 3 March
In a nutshell
Contemporary writers offer new works in celebration of writers-at-risk globally
Over a dozen contemporary English writers present new works, each in tribute to a writer who is part of the English PEN Writer's at Risk programme, writers living under oppression around the world.
The event is free to attend but attendees are encouraged to join English PEN.
What to Expect
Modernist & avant garde writers poets, novelists, playwrights and artists come together to continue English Pen's relationship with innovative contemporary literature. Each of the over 15 British writers will present brand new poetry, text, reportage, performance on the day. The new works celebrate and evidence the struggle of fellow writers around the world, in solidarity.
English PEN is the founding centre of a worldwide writers’ association with 145 centres in more than 100 countries. They campaign to defend writers and readers in the UK and around the world whose human right to freedom of expression is at risk.
