Write! Africa, Write! is PEN South Africa’s call
to African writers to say what
they wish to say and to eschew
the divisions of the past in favour
of the idea of one humanity living
in peace on one continent.
PEN South Africa is affiliated
to PEN International - an organisation
operating on all six continents that
represents writers of the world,
defends free expression
and encourages literature.
A leading voice of literature,
PEN brings together poets, novelists,
essayists, historians, playwrights,
critics, translators, editors, journalists
and screenwriters in a common
concern for the craft and art of writing
and a commitment to freedom of
expression through the written word.
