PEN America is a nonprofit organization that for over 90 years has focused on ensuring that people around the world have the freedom to create literature, to convey information and ideas, to express their views, and to make it possible for everyone to access the views, ideas, and literature of others. PEN America  hosts a full range of programs, including the PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature, in order to expand the freedom to write and celebrate the power of literature. It also supports and defends writers endangered because of their work. PEN America relies on its members which include a community of novelists, journalists, editors, poets, publishers, translators, agents, and of course devoted readers.
