About Freedom to Write Award (PEN)

From 1987-2015 the PEN/Barbara Goldsmith Freedom to Write Award honored writers anywhere in the world who have fought courageously in the face of adversity for the right to freedom of expression. In 2016 the (successor) PEN/Barbey Freedom to Write Award is designed to honor a writer imprisoned for his or her work. The award is administered by PEN America Center. NOTE that this award is one of many PEN awards sponsored by International PEN in over 145 PEN centres around the world
