Help Persecuted Writers
Endangered Writers Fund
PEN American Center
Throughout the world, there are writers facing acute persecution, imprisonment, torture, or attack for practicing their right to free expression.
The Emergency Fund for Endangered Writers assists writers in prison and those who are persecuted by providing funds for legal and medical assistance to their families. In the past year, the Emergency Fund has delivered $8,400 in direct financial assistance to writers facing persecution in Afghanistan, Eritrea, The Gambia, Russia, Senegal, and Uzbekistan.
