International PEN, a worldwide association of writers, was founded in 1921 to promote friendship and intellectual cooperation among writers everywhere, to emphasize the role of literature in the development of mutual understanding and world culture, to fight for freedom of expression, and to act as a powerful voice on behalf of writers harassed, imprisoned, and sometimes killed for their views.
